Judgment at Nuremberg depicts a watershed event: the first trials, based on principles of justice and international law, of the leaders of a country that waged aggressive war and committed crimes against humanity. The film is a gripping, searching, and provocative look at the moral issues surrounding both the actions of the accused and the process of bringing them to justice. The film also explores the issue of whether ordinary Germans bore responsibility for the Holocaust.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a set of discussion questions from the Learning Guide to Judgment at Nuremberg.
Did the people living in Germany during the Second World War bear responsibility for the Holocaust? Did they know about the concentration camps? Was it "very few" as contended by the German defense attorney? Or, as the Janning character finally admits: "Were we deaf? Blind? If we didn't know, it was because we didn't want to know."
The Learning Guide to the film Judgment at Nuremberg contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
