Judgment at Nuremberg film honored

judgment at nurmbergUnder the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the National Film Registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant.  One of the films named to the 2013 National Film Registry is Judgment at Nuremberg released in 1961. This film dramatizes the “Justices Trial” of the post-World War II Nuremberg war crimes tribunal, rather than the more publicized trials of major Nazi war criminals. The Library of Congress noted that the film “argues passionately that those responsible for administering justice also have the duty to ensure that human-rights norms are preserved even if they conflict with national imperatives.”  This classic legal film is available for checkout in the Law Library DVD Collection.
