"Nuremberg"­ The greatest courtroom drama in history.

"Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today" The greatest courtroom drama in history.
Addendum: The restoration producer, Sandra Schulberg, will be present for this screening. What is the culpability of those who stay silent in the face of widespread human rights abuse? Of those that "didn't know" but should have? What is our responsibility today as world citizens? Many of our current notions are informed by the drama that followed World War II.
How is it that the Allies’ own film of the greatest courtroom drama of all time — the 1945 Nuremberg trial of top Nazi war criminals — never played in U.S. theaters? Sandra Schulberg and Josh Waletzky have masterfully restored this historic movie (after U.S. officials suppressed the film and the negative and soundtrack were lost or destroyed), originally directed by Schulberg’s father and commissioned by Pare Lorentz. The restoration team reconstructed the musical score and Liev Schreiber re-recorded the narration. Nuremberg, the first major trial to prosecute crimes against humanity, addressed questions of guilt and complicity in unimaginable atrocities. The film captures the defendants in their own words, admitting only to “certain excesses” and “abuses.” Intended as an historical endpoint, an object lesson for future generations, Nuremberg has since become, tragically, a prototype for tribunals convened to prosecute genocides around the world. Tuesday is the final day for this film's scheduled run.
We strongly recommend buying tickets in advance to avoid being disappointed.
Tickets available online beginning September 22 We expect to go out afterwards to a nearby eatery, to be determined, to discuss the film.

    “ Very powerful seeing this archival footage of the actual events and the Nazi perpetrators. For the first time in history, the "I didn't know" defense and the "I was only following orders" defense were resoundingly rejected by the world community. Makes me more mindful of my own responsibility as a global citizen to inquire and to speak out.
