Seventy-five years ago, the Nuremberg trials marked a crucial moment in international law, as high-ranking Nazis were finally held accountable for their crimes under the Allied powers. Today, they continue to be recognized as a legal milestone and served as a blueprint for future tribunals. In an insightful documentary, filmmakers explore the consequences of the Nuremberg trials on key players who lived through them.
Through interviews with the likes of Renate Rönn, Niklas Frank, and Peter Gardosch, the documentary uncovers how the trials impacted the lives of the people involved. Frank had to grapple with the fact that his father, Hans Frank, was going to be executed, while Gardosch, a Holocaust survivor, felt nothing but satisfaction. Rönn, whose father served as a defense counsel, was forced to confront deep feelings of shame as a German. Engaging and informative, this documentary shines a light onto one of the most significant legal proceedings of the 20th century.
