    Chief Prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz

    We shall establish, beyond the realm of doubt, facts which before the dark decade of the Third Reich would have seemed incredible. The slaughter committed by these defendants was dictated not by military necessity, but by that supreme perversion of thought, the Nazi theory of the master race. We shall show that these deeds of men in uniform were the methodical execution of long range plans to destroy ethnic, national, political, and religious groups which stood condemned in the Nazi mind. Genocide, the extermination of whole categories of human beings, was a foremost instrument of the Nazi doctrine.

    US prosecutor John Glancy details the specific crimes of the defendants and provides examples from prosecution evidence. Shot of Brig. Gen. Telford Taylor. Glancy talks about defendant Eduard Strauch, Commander of Einsatzkommando 2, and the number of murders they committed.
