Three-Part Series Premieres Monday, November 16 at 10/9c
Seventy years after the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, AHC presents this exclusive three-part series that takes viewers inside the minds and the secret workings of the Nazi leadership. Combining narration with full dialogue-driven drama, NUREMBERG: NAZI JUDGMENT DAY gives an unprecedented view of three key players in the Nazi regime – Hermann Goering, Albert Speer and Rudolf Hess. Drawing on extensive research of archives throughout Europe and the United States, the series uses largely unpublished documents to bring the Nazi war criminals back to life and follows them from their capture to their sentence and to each of their subsequent fates: suicide; 20 years imprisonment; and life imprisonment, respectively. These are not biographies in the conventional sense, as they allow viewers to meet the key figures in the Allied camp, from the judges and prosecutors to the psychologists, and to understand better how they came to construct the most important trial in history.
