I've long hoped for a comprehensive documentary about the Nuremberg War Trials....and this one looked good by description. The 210 minute running time seemed impressive.

Well, although the film is good, the actual running time for the documentary is only 90 minutes! The advertised running time of 210 minutes unfortunately includes the "bonus films" contained on the second disc. The Doc itself uses footage from the trials filmed by the US OSS and also features some modern interviews with the likes of Budd Schulberg. Again, the Doc is good, but far from the highly detailed work the erroneous running time suggests. According to the printed material, 25 reels(10 minutes each) of OSS material exists.....why not include ALL of that existing material as extras?

The "bonus films" are: "That Justice Be Done"(1945, USA) at 10 minutes, "Nazi Concentration Camps"(1945, USA) at 58 minutes, and "Atrocities Committed By The German Fascists In The USSR"(1946, in Russian) at 60 minutes. Two of these were shown at the trials, so include no trial footage.

I ordered this DVD to watch with my father who was Sargent of the guard at the Nuremberg Trials. As we sat and watched yet another DVD about Nuremberg we found it a bit difficult to follow because the information was not in proper sequence. This is evidenced by the change of the guards uniforms back and forth from the heavier, darker, winter uniform to the lighter colored summer uniform.
My father felt the information was accurate but he had a lot of extra information to add to what was shared in the DVD.
At the end of the DVD I was shocked but very happy to see my father appear when the prisoners were taken back to their cells. My Dad was running the elevator and escorting the prisoners back to their cells. (Dad was unaware he was in this film)

While I enjoyed this factual depiction of Nuremberg, I watched my Dad's face as he called out the names people in the film and also the sadness of seeing once again what he had witnessed when he was only 18 years old.

This is a very fine documentary, very compassionately narrated by Christopher Plummer. Most of the bonus material, on a separate DVD here, is of the "Holocaust Atrocity" type; very important to have seen, but not strictly about the trial, where two of the films were shown as evidence. Several of the persons are well portrayed in this footage, especially Robert Jackson, and Goering, whom he never quite mastered, and some sense of the gist of the trial comes across. Mostly, this is some of the most important film footage ever taken, and guess who is doing it? Director John Ford, who was in the army at the time.

Clearly the Holocaust bonus features are not in the realm of artistic expression. The first short is a news announcement from 1945; you can see on the list that the grandest mistake of the trial, that of indicting the wrong Krupp, is already evident: this list says "Gustav" Krupp, but he had been practically comatose in bed for years; it was his son Alfried who should have been prosecuted, and whom all Allied lists of war criminals had included. The final list of defendants had been made from earlier lists projected for several years; some bureaucrat simply wrote the wrong name down at the last minute. It might be interesting to know who made that mistake, which was not the only one of its kind - only after the astonished Russians pointed out that Adolf Hitler's name was not even included was he listed as a war criminal just a few weeks before his suicide. Of the several accounts I have read none suggest whether or not prosecutor Robert Jackson knew exactly why the Krupp mistake had been made, but it was an historic error, since the failure to correct it meant that no industrialists were tried at Nuernberg - so guess what Earth's biggest problems are now about?
