Reaction to class ~ Nuremberg 5/17-5/21 (classes)

For the past week we have watched the dramatic and capturing movie Nuremberg, directed by Yves Simoneau. This movie helped me to grasp a thorough understanding of all that took place during the Trials held at Nuremberg. I was able to get a visual of the autrocity behind the sceming that took place during 1945, after the end of World War II. Germany stands ruined and defeated after the unconditional surrender of the Allies. This fact-based courtroom dramatization examines the international tribunal that assembled in Nuremberg, Germany, which was in an utterly war-torn state.

I really enjoyed the film and I found it to be very captivating. the harsh cruelty and truth behind the Nuremberg trials is portrayed very effectively. When the film showed a segment on the real footage behind  the camps I felt like i was right in the courtroom along with others who watched in shock and disgust as some began to flee the area because of the shocking evidence.

all in all i found it to be a well established portrayal of what all took place during the Nuremberg Trials.
