Prosecutor asks Goering: "Do you still say that neither Hitler nor you knew of the policy to exterminate the Jews?" Goering: "I already had said that not even approximately did I know to what degree this thing took place." Prosecutor: "You did not know to what degree, but you knew there was a policy which aimed at the liquidation of the Jews?" Goering: "No, not liquidation of Jews, only knew that certain perpetrations had taken place." Prosecutor cross-examining Speer. Final statements of defendants. Frank, "I myself speaking from the very depths of my sentiments...say this: now that I have gained a last insight into all that which has been committed in the way of dreadful atrocities, I feel a terrible guilt within me." Funk, "...When measures of terror and violence against Jews were put to me, I suffered a nervous breakdown...I feel ashamed and guilty." Final statements of Schirach, Schacht, Speer: "The tremendous danger contained in this totalitarian system only became really clear the moment we were approaching the end....This trial must contribute to the prevention of such distorted wars in the future and to the establishment of principles of human cooperation."
