At the close of World War II, in Nuremburg, Germany, the trial of Nazi war criminals was the first to prosecute crimes against humanity. Genocide was a brand new word, and the proceedings at Nuremburg set the precedent for an international court. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa explains why a film documenting the trial was suppressed and what its current restoration holds for today’s audiences.
"Nuremburg: Its Lesson for Today", will have three showings in Honolulu.
