To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the International Military Tribunal, Crime Story presents a new series, NUREMBERG. Sean Smith examines the many dimensions of the historic judicial proceedings. Drawing on official transcripts of the trial, as well as a vast bibliography of first- and second-hand accounts, NUREMBERG tells the stories behind the legal, political and personal struggles which complicated this revolutionary exercise in international jurisprudence.
Part 1 sets the stage and the stakes for the story of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal.
In Part 2 of our new Crime Story series Nuremberg, we examine the journey of Robert Jackson from the United States Supreme Court to the role of Lead Prosecutor of the Nuremberg Tribunal.
In Part 3 of our new Crime Story series Nuremberg, we examine the journey of German Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering from from the shell of the man that he was when arrested in the immediate aftermath of the Nazi Regime’s collapse to the defiant and confident leader of a group of men accused of crimes against humanity.
