Movie Fact #826 – July 28th, 2015:

The 1961 American drama film “Judgment at Nuremberg” is notable for its use of courtroom drama to illuminate individual perfidy and moral compromise in times of violent political upheaval. More importantly, it was one of the first films not to shy from showing actual footage filmed by American and British soldiers after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. A big example is when prosecuting attorney Colonel Tad Lawson (Played by Richard Widmark), shows in court the scenes of huge piles of naked corpses laid out in rows and bulldozed into large pits were considered exceptionally graphic for a mainstream film of its day. Cause let’s be honest. To make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, isn’t it only right that we face the horrors, that they are engraved into our minds so we never forget?
