|Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today|
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
This event will feature a screening of The Schulberg/Waletzky Restoration of the U.S. Government film on the 1945-46 international Nuremberg trial of the principal Nazi war criminals. In 1947-48, this film was produced for the U.S. Government by Pare Lorentz and Stuart Schulberg, but the government then barred the film from domestic release based on “present policies and aims….” In that early Cold War period, the President of this Association, Harrison Tweed, sought to obtain from the government a copy of the film to show in the House of the Association. The request was denied – a U.S.S.R. film on Nuremberg was shown instead. Now, belatedly, the restored U.S. film will have its Association premiere. Following the film screening, there will be a panel discussion.
