War Crimes Trials, Nuremberg, Germany, January 11, 1946. Dr. Franz Blaha testifying on stand and being cross examined by several defense attorneys. Blaha testifies that in his autopsies, he found several to have died of suffocation, these were high French officers and priests, all well-fed people who had been brought to Dachau in plain clothes. They did not have contact to other prisoners. One defense attorney questions his responding truthfully, asks if he testified the same in his affidavit, asks if Blaha was given information on how the defendants were seated in the court room and if he had signed a protocol, both of which Blaha responds to with "No."
