NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMPS (Black/White, 1945, 59:16)
A grisly, detailed and uncompromising film documenting at length the horrors American troops discovered in the concentration camps they liberated. May be distressing to some viewers.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: TRIAL AT NUREMBERG (Black/White, 1957, 22:00)
Walter Cronkite narrates this journey through the court proceedings that held the leaders of Nazi Germany to account for the horrors of the Holocaust under The Third Reich.

NUREMBERG (Black/White, 1947, 1:15:05)
The US Army's official feature length documentary film on the Nuremberg Trials, chronicling the crimes against humanity committed by the Third Reich in general and the defendants in particular, their aftermath of death and destruction throughout Europe, and the progress and process of the trial prosecuted by the victorious Allies against the perpetrators of these horrific crimes.

THE NUREMBERG TRIALS (Black/White, 1946, 57:00)
This dark Russian film, in its original dubbed English version, graphically illustrates in stark images and uncompromising narrative the terrible costs of the wars of conquest and genocide waged by Nazi Germany. It was released immediately after the conclusion of the 1946 Nuremberg Trials. Some sections on concentration camp horrors may be distressing to some viewers.


July 31, 1941: The Holocaust: Under instructions from Adolf Hitler, Nazi leader Hermann Goering orders SS General Reinhard Heydrich to "submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired Final Solution of the Jewish question." The Final Solution (German: Endlosung), or the Final Solution to the Jewish Question (German: Die Endlosung Der Judenfrage) was a Nazi plan for the extermination of the Jews during World War II. The "Final Solution of the Jewish Question" was the official code name for the murder of all Jews within reach, which was not limited to the European continent. This policy of deliberate and systematic genocide starting across German-occupied Europe was formulated in procedural and geo-political terms by Nazi leadership in January 1942 at the Wannsee Conference near Berlin, and culminated in the Holocaust, which saw the killing of 90 percent of Jewish Poles, and two thirds of the Jewish population of Europe. The nature and timing of the decisions that led to the Final Solution is an intensely studied and debated aspect of the Holocaust. The program evolved during the first 25 months of war leading to the attempt at "murdering every last Jew in the German grasp". Most historians agree, wrote Christopher Browning, that the Final Solution cannot be attributed to a single decision made at one particular point in time. "It is generally accepted the decision-making process was prolonged and incremental." In 1940, following the Fall of France, Adolf Eichmann devised the Madagascar Plan to move Europe's Jewish population to the French colony, but the plan was abandoned for logistical reasons, mainly a naval blockade. There were also preliminary plans to deport Jews to Palestine and Siberia. In 1941, wrote Raul Hilberg, in the first phase of the mass murder of Jews, the mobile killing units began to pursue their victims across occupied eastern territories; in the second phase, stretching across all of German-occupied Europe, the Jewish victims were sent on death trains to centralized extermination camps built for the purpose of systematic implementation of the Final Solution. On July 31, 1941, under orders from Hitler, Goering ordered SS General Reinhard Heydrich to "submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired Final Solution of the Jewish question." On December 12, 1941, Adolf Hitler declared the imminent extermination of the Jews to the highest-ranking officials of the Nazi Party assembled at that day's Reich Chancellery meeting. Almost all important party leaders were present to hear Hitler declare the ongoing destruction of the Jewish race, yet it remains less known than the later Wannsee Conference, which decided the details of the "final solution of the to the Jewish question". Attendance at this meeting was obligatory for Nazis in high party offices. No official list of the people who attended this meeting with Hitler exists, but out of the about 50 present, the leaders of Nazi Germany known to have been there were Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, Martin Bormann, Hans Frank and Philipp Bouhler; Hermann Goering was not there, the second most powerful man in Germany and one of the original Nazi Party leaders, because at that time he did not hold a party office as he was commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe. Goebbels wrote in his diary for that date: "Regarding the Jewish Question, the Fuehrer has decided to make a clean sweep. He prophesied to the Jews that, if they yet again brought about a world war, they would experience their own annihilation. That was not just a phrase. The world war is here, and the annihilation of the Jews must be the necessary consequence.". This meeting of Hitler' undermines claims that he was ignorant of the Holocaust, and that it was carried out by subordinates without his knowledge; rather, the Holocaust was the logical conclusion of his orders and intentions, spelled out in this meeting. On January 20, 1942, The Wannsee Conference was held in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee. The Wannsee Conference was a meeting of senior government officials of Nazi Germany and Schutzstaffel (SS) leaders, held in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee on 20 January 1942. The purpose of the conference, called by the director of the Reich Main Security Office SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich, was to ensure the cooperation of administrative leaders of various government departments in the implementation of the so-called "Final Solution to the Jewish question" (German: Endlosung der Judenfrage), whereby most of the Jews of German-occupied Europe would be deported to Poland and murdered. Conference attendees included representatives from several government ministries, including state secretaries from the Foreign Office, the justice, interior, and state ministries, and representatives from the SS. In the course of the meeting, Heydrich outlined how European Jews would be rounded up and sent to extermination camps in the General Government (the occupied part of Poland), where they would be killed. Soon after the invasion of Poland in September 1939, the persecution of European Jewry was raised to unprecedented levels, but systematic killing of men, women and children only began in June 1941 after the onset of Operation Barbarossa against the Soviets. On 31 July 1941 Hermann Goering gave written authorization to Heydrich to prepare and submit a plan for a "total solution of the Jewish question" in territories under German control and to coordinate the participation of all involved government organisations. At Wannsee, Heydrich emphasized that once the mass deportation was complete, the SS would take complete charge of the exterminations. A secondary goal was to arrive at a definition of who was formally Jewish and thus determine the scope of the genocide. One copy of the Protocol with circulated minutes of the meeting survived the war. It was found by Robert Kempner in March 1947 among files that had been seized from the German Foreign Office. It was used as evidence in the Subsequent Nuremberg Trials. The Wannsee House, site of the conference, is now a Holocaust memorial.

November 20, 1945: The Nuremberg War Crime Trials begins as 24 former leaders of Nazi Germany are charged with conspiracy to wage wars of aggression, crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. On August 8, 1945, The London Charter, also referred to as the Nuremberg Charter, the decree issued by the European Advisory Commission, set down the laws, rules and procedures by which the Nuremberg trials were to be conducted when it iss signed by France, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and the United States. The Charter of the International Military Tribunal - Annex to the Agreement for the prosecution and punishment of the major war criminals of the European Axis (usually referred to as the Nuremberg Charter or London Charter) stipulated that crimes of the European Axis Powers could be tried. Three categories of crimes were defined: crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. Article 8 of the charter also stated that holding an official position was no defense to war crimes. Obedience to orders could only be considered in mitigation of punishment if the Tribunal determined that justice so required. The criminal procedure used by the Tribunal was closer to civil law than to common law, with a trial before a panel of judges rather than a jury trial and with wide allowance for hearsay evidence. Defendants who were found guilty could appeal the verdict to the Allied Control Council. In addition, they would be permitted to present evidence in their defense and to cross-examine witnesses. The Charter was developed by the European Advisory Commission under the authority of the Moscow Declaration: Statement on Atrocities, which was agreed at the Moscow Conference (1943). It was drawn up in London, following the surrender of Germany on VE Day. It was drafted by Robert H. Jackson, Robert Falco, and Iona Nikitchenko of the European Advisory Commission and issued on 8 August 1945. The Charter and its definition of crimes against peace was also the basis of the Finnish law, approved by the Finnish parliament on 11 September 1945, that enabled the war-responsibility trials in Finland. The agreement enabled the prosecution and punishment of the major war criminals of the European Axis. The Agreement and Charter were subsequently ratified by 19 other Allied states.
