(Munich 624) War Crimes Trials - Subsequent Trial Proceedings, Case 6 (I.G. Farben Case), Nuremberg, Germany. Judge Curtis Grover Shake, presiding, calls upon Carl Lautenschlaeger (defendant) to plead. Judge Shake states in part that a petition put forth by the defendants for more time to prepare their answer to the indictment is denied. Brig. Gen. Telford Taylor at lectern, reading the indictment says that the prisoners are accused of leading the world into the most catastrophic war known to mankind, etc. What these men did, Gen. Taylor says, was not something that was done in a rage, but with definite deliberation to create a great engine of war. Pan from Gen. Taylor speaking to defendants.
