Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today

A film by Pare Lorentz

The official U.S. government film about the 1st Nuremberg trial (The Trial of the Major Nazi War Criminals) which lasted from November 20, 1945 to October 1, 1946.

Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today depicts the most famous courtroom drama in modern times, and the first to make extensive use of film as evidence. Strict limits were placed, however, on the Army Signal Corps cameramen. In the end, they were permitted to film only about 25 hours over the entire course of the 11 month trial. This was to prove a great impediment for director Stuart Schulberg when he was engaged to make the official film about the trial, in 1946, shortly after its conclusion.
