Restored Nuremberg Trials Film Coming to Fort Wayne

(September 7, 2011) – Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne’s (IPFW’s) Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, in conjunction with Temple Achduth Vesholom and the Cinema Center, are sponsoring a showing of a 35 mm restored print of Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today, Thursday, Sept. 15, 7 p.m. at the Cinema Center, 437 E. Berry Street.

According to the restoration project’s website, the film “…shows how the four allied prosecution teams…built their cases against the top Nazi leaders.” The trial “…established the ‘Nuremberg principles,’ laying the groundwork for all subsequent prosecutions, anywhere in the world, for crimes against the peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.”

The original film was produced under the sponsorship of the U.S. War Department and the Motion Picture Branch of U.S. Military Government in Berlin. After its release in 1948, it was never screened theatrically. The film uses footage from The Nazi Plan and Nazi Concentration Camps, evidentiary films that were presented at the Nuremberg trials.

After the film is shown at the Cinema Center, a discussion will be led by Steven A. Carr, co-director of IPFW’s Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and featuring the film’s restoration producer, Sandra Schulberg, daughter of Stuart Schulberg, the original film’s writer-director.

The screening and discussion are free and open to the public. For more information on the screening, contact Carr at 260-481-6545 or carr@ipfw.edu.
