Film | Accession Number: 2001.358.1 | RG Number: RG-60.2835 | Film ID: 2349

(Munich 54) War Crimes Trials, Nuremberg, Germany, March 18, 1946. HASs, MSs, front view of Chief Prosecutor Robert H. Jackson (US) interrogating Hermann Goering. (Goering is not visible in these shots.) Subject of the cross examination is the plan to overthrow the Weimar Republic and break the opposition. Goering says that, yes, they had been in opposition long enough and were eager to get to power. MS, pan, Wilhelm Frick, Julius Streicher, and Walther Funk seated in the prisoners' dock. MS, Justices Francis Biddle and John J. Parker. A point is made to the Tribunal that defendants answer questions and use the trial for propagandistic purposes. US prosecutor argues that the US is robbed of the possibility of an effective cross examination. Judge Jackson tries to play down the complaint but admits that the information given about US mobilization plans (apparently what Goering had talked about before the complaint) is irrelevant.
