Trailer -


"Reality" television is the rage, but the programming thankfully isn't all millionaire wannabes and island survivors. Beginning on July 16, TNT will present "Nuremberg," an original four-hour television movie on the Allied nations' 1945-46 prosecution of the principal Nazi leaders. The movie presents a central, timeless idea: nations can, through law, respond to and thus try to prevent the brutal excesses of aggressive war and genocide. Although the production could have been more historically accurate, its effort to teach Nuremberg is commendable.

The Schulberg Movie - The Nazi Plan - Day 17

The Nazi Plan a four hour compilation film, was shown as evidence at the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg on Day 17 of the Trials (December 11, 1945). It was compiled by brothers Budd and Stuart Schulberg and other military personnel, under the supervision of Navy Commander James Donovan.

The compilers took pains to use only German source material, including official newsreels and other German films (1919-45). It was put together for the US Counsel for the Prosecution of Axis Criminality and the US Office of the Chief Counsel for War Crimes.

The four-part film was received in evidence as IMT exhibit USA-167.

  • 1.The Rise of the NSDAP, 1921 to 1933 (reels 1-2);
  • 2.Acquiring Control of Germany, 1933-1935 (reels 3-8);
  • 3.Preparation for Wars of Aggression, 1935-1939 (reels 9-16);
  • 4.Wars of Aggression, 1939-1944 (reels 17-22).
