Abstract

My initial thought on encountering Justice at Nuremberg was that finally I would have the chance to get to know the defendants, whom at age 19 I personally encountered and photographed as a member of the U.S. Army’s photo detachment assigned to officially document the Trial with sound movies. (The movies are now in the U.S. National Archives.) For several months I observed the sullen and glum defendants, trying to penetrate what turned out to be their impenetrable visages. In the subsequent years of my continued interest and intermittent searching, I turned up nothing more than bits and pieces of information, such as that convicted defendant Herta Oberhauser was trying to resume medical practice in North Germany in the fifties. Even the arrival of the internet 50 years later did not point me anywhere revealing. Now I would get the answers.
