Nuremberg Remembered | Facing History and Ourselves

On November 20, 1945, 24 high-ranking Nazis went on trial for atrocities committed during World War II. The Nuremberg Trials, held from 1945 to 1949, were a galvanizing moment in history, international law and human rights. Nuremberg Remembered is a free 12-minute documentary about the Nuremberg Trials. It combines both archival footage and modern-day interviews with trial participants who served in a variety of roles, including members of the legal team for the prosecution and a journalist reporting on the events for the press. A set of three lessons, along with the documentary, introduces teachers and students to the essential questions of judgment and responsibility that were initially posed at the end of World War II and continue to be raised in the twenty-first century. Extension activities and resources at the end of the lessons provide ideas and activities for more in-depth study of judgment, past and present. The lessons, entitled “The Road to Nuremberg,” “Guilt and Responsibility” and “Reflections and Legacies,” are provided free of charge by Facing History and Ourselves.
