    Film Provenance
    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum purchased this from the National Archives and Records Administration in September 1998.
    This is a documentary about the war crimes trial administered by the International Military Court of Justice in Nuremberg against the main Nazi war criminals from November 14, 1945 to October 1, 1946. The film documents footage of the trial from the prosecutor's opening to the verdict. The dramaturgy includes a chronological account of the founding of the National Socialist state, the unleashing of the world war, and the Nazi crimes against humanity and is accompanied with historical footage. This material is occasionally only used for illustration and does not necessarily portray the facts being commented upon. The film is also called "Nuremberg."

    Copyright: While this film is a production of the US government and is therefore in the public domain, it contains German newsreel footage, the rights to which are held by the German state archive (Bundesarchiv) through their agent, Transit Film. Researchers should exercise caution when using newsreel clips from this film, and consider clearing the rights with Transit, especially if broadcast in Europe.

    See duplicate footage of roundups at start of this reel on Film ID 402. See Stories 2413-2417, Film ID 67 and Stories 3007-3008, Film ID 2388 and Story 4326, Film ID 2794 and Film IDs 2749-2758 for additional reels of this film. See Story 4291 for duplicate footage of this reel.

    Video transfer ident at head of each reel mistakenly labels this "Nuremburg." NARA records and correct spelling are "Nuremberg."

    Belsen footage in this version runs 60 seconds. The Headen Collection (German version) is also 60 seconds. The Univ. of Wisconsin (Pare Lorentz) version seems to be c. 56 seconds.
