It still shocks me everyday how horrible and violent that people can be. All these years and all these people that purposefully killed and tortured another person is indescribable. Still the men who were responsible for ordering these acts, behaved in the trial as if they did nothing wrong. Scary thing I learned from this movie was how Hitler had a master plan to iradicate the jews, the sick, the disabled, etc. and then carry out this plan for so many years across so many countries. The term "Never Again" gave me a new understanding after watching this movies, I always thought it meant, never again should we sit idle and allow people to be tortured and killed, but what I have come to believe is that it means, never again can we allow anyone to become so powerful over the people and allow such drastic decisions as to eradicate anyone.Was this review helpful?

Robert Jackson, the chief prosecutor during the Nuremberg trials wrote and read the indictment at the beginning of the trial. This document deserves to be reread by americans and the judicial as well as the executive branch of the United States. After the auspicious US initiatives for the Nuremberg trials the USA government has failed to support and encourage new initiatives in International Law or even accept the authority of The International Court of Law or the International Criminal Court of Law. The USA need to show they are willing to undergo the scrutiny of the International Law Community for the their own alleged atrocities in Irak, Guatanamo Bay, waterboarding et al.Was this review helpful?

The Nuremberg trials DVD demonstrates how important it is for the civilized world to circle the wagons and develop new rules and regulations to pass fair judgement on accusations of racism, genocide, torture, terror bombing and the like. The USA deserves respect for their contributions to the Nuremberg trials and the generation of new jurisprudence in the field of International Law. The USA will lose this respect, if they will not accept that USA citizens or Government will ever be a defendant for an Interational Court of Law. The final line of the movie 'Some like it hot' applies: Nobody is perfect. The critique on the Nuremberg trials voiced by the defendants such as victors justice and 'tu,quogue' should not apply to the US.
I hope that nobody who watches the Nuremberg trials in its entirety will need to be convinced of the noble intentions of the USA and the justice served during these trials. In addition I hope that americans will be convinced by watching this DVD, that the leadership of the USA in the field of International Law should continue with full support for actions and proceedings of the existing International Law courts
