On the heels of World War II, the Allied powers conducted military tribunals to prosecute those accused of committing crimes against humanity under the Nazi regime. “Judgment at Nuremberg” was originally a teleplay and later an Oscar Award-winning film. This stage production is based on Abby Mann’s Oscar-winning script.
