"As a Holocaust survivor and one of the few remaining live witnesses... I had the privilege of seeing the fascinating film, Nuremberg: Reflection and Resonance. The trial itself ties directly to what is happening today with genocide. The Nuremberg Trial was the first time the surviving leaders of a government were brought to trial for crimes against humanity and it remains one of the most dramatic events in the history of the 20th century."
-- Ernest W. Michel, Chair, World Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors in Israel, Executive Vice President Emeritus, UJA-Federation, New York
Cardozo's award-winning documentary, Nuremberg: Reflection and Resonance, presents dramatic story-telling and first-hand recollections by those who played significant roles as prosecutors, translators, and investigators at Nuremberg. They make the trials and the post-World War II era in which they took place come to life. Among those interviewed is legendary correspondent and Nuremberg reporter, Walter Cronkite.
The film then moves seamlessly from Nuremberg to The Hague where with candor and wit, contemporary jurists and prosecutors at the modern international criminal tribunals thoughtfully and critically explore the Nuremberg Trial's influence upon the international courts currently hearing cases against individuals accused of grave human right abuses. Along with legal scholars, they bring us up to date, discussing the international community's successes and failures in the fight against the continuing abuses of human dignity. As the film shows us, while Nuremberg presented a model in the fight for accountability, there is an increasing need to address the effects of systematic and grave human rights abuses committed around the world and to bring perpetrators to justice.
Released in 2006. 55 minutes.
