Edited down by Guardian journalist Norton-Taylor to two hours' playing time and using only the actual words spoken in court, this 'gripping, meticulous reconstruction' (Independent) of the 1946 Nuremberg War Crimes Trial was stunning on stage and makes for sobering and illuminating reading.
One by one the surviving members of the Nazi High Command troupe into the dock: Hitler's Deputy, Hermann Goering; Chief of Staff Wilhelm Keitel; Rudolf Hoess, the Commandant of Auschwitz; Alfred Rosenberg, the chief Nazi theorist; and Hitler's architect and Armaments Minister, Albert Speer. One by one they protest their ignorance, innocence or need to follow orders. One by one they are sentenced for crimes against humanity.
Also included are extracts from the abundant background documentation assembled by Norton-Taylor and the director of the Tricycle Theatre, London, where Nuremberg was first staged.
