Part one: History in the making. Events leading up to the International Military Tribunal. The charges against the most notorious Nazi leaders. What the city of Nuremberg was like during the trials. Were the trials an example of victor's justice? The legacy of the Nuremberg Trials, and how today's international courts reflect precedents set at Nuremberg.
Part two: The twelve subsequent trials. Following the Intertnational Military Tribunal, twelve additional trials were held against Nazi professionals, adminisrators and military leaders. As prosecutor H. W. William Caming said, "Hitler could not make agressive war by himself," and these subsequent trials focused on those who made the Nazi war effort and Holocaust possible.
Part three: Documentary evidence. The Nazis were excellent record-keepers, and their convictions in the War Crimes Trials came largely as a result of their own documents. In this program, prosecutor Theodore Fenstermacher reads from some of the documents presented in evidence agains the German General Staff and High Command. Some of these excerpts are graphic and disturbing. Also in this program, the prosecutors reflect on how they became part of the prosecutorial team at Nuremberg.
