Enter Sandra Schulberg, who has, with loving care and rare diligence, fully restored her father's film.

The images here are undeniably powerful and disturbing, and the footage of the Nazi kingpins is startling in that it shows these monsters to be men, nothing more.

Compels us as much because of its complicated and fascinating history as for what it has to show, which is a lot.

The film is not sophisticated; it is a bludgeon in words and images that cannot be presented otherwise.

Despite official efforts, this is a film that can't be dismissed.

Significant, high-minded, frustratingly incomplete and dishwater-dull.

Nuremberg builds its case slowly with what's now a textbook recapitulation of Hitler's ascendancy. Nevertheless, the chronicle's beats (Reichstag fire, Sudetenland, Axis pact, etc.) still induce feelings of dread, grief, powerlessness, and loathing.

Less a passionate examination to be championed, and more a vital historical document to be admired.

... skillfully combines trial materials with other footage from the war ... to illustrate the extent of the crimes of which the defendants were accused.

January 19, 2012 Full Review Source: Playback:stl

A film that still packs an emotional wallop, and is a significant historical document as well.

...seeing Hermann Göring, Rudolf Hess, Albert Speer and others equivocate while announcing their newfound feelings of shame and guilt is to understand the long tradition of political leaders cravenly refusing to take responsibility for their actions.

It does a fine job of summarizing what happened at the trials and of detailing the almost unimaginable horrors that made the trials necessary.

it has the feeling of something vital and yet incomplete, as though greatness was swung for but solidly missed

October 7, 2010 Full Review Source:

"Nuremberg" should be mandatory viewing for all high school world history classes. It is truly an essential documentary.

October 2, 2010 Full Review Source:

Nazi trial documentary, never before released in the U.S., proves significant and relevant.

Valuable and educational resource. . .thoughtful, systematic, and unflinching presentation of legal case makes it relevant as a model for bringing charges in . . .genocide.
