Description by OLDIES.com:
Filmed by well-known Hollywood director George Stevens, then serving in the Army, this heart-shattering documentary was introduced as evidence by prosecutors in the Nuremberg war-crimes trials. Perhaps repeated viewing will prevent the recurrence of such horrors.
Filmed by Lt. Col. George C. Stevens, U.S. Army Signal Corps
The Nuremburg Trials: In response to the unprecedented level of brutality exhibited by the Nazis during WWII, the Allied forces convened the world's first international war crimes trial. Their purpose was to hold accountable the men responsible for the atrocities that came to light as the war ended. The world soon became familiar with a hitherto little used term - genocide - as it related to Adolph Hitler's "final solution" of the "Jewish problem." These historic trials established the precedent that conscience supersedes the blind following of "orders" - a powerful new idea.
This rare film is the official documentary produced by the Soviet Union to educate its citizens about the groundbreaking proceedings, and provides a fascinating counterpoint to the familiar Western histories.
Directed by S. Svilov, Central Documentary Film Studios, Moscow, U.S.S.R.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 15 ratings.
I gave this film a 4 star rating but there's no way you can "rate" a catalogue of horrors. We mut never forget the brutality that the human animal is capable of. There is a warning that the film contains graphic images...believe the warning. This film is not for everyone.
