For evidence, the
prosecutors used a variety of displays. Films such as The Nazi Plan,
and an Nazi concentration camps (Pensco, 143). Other
pieces of evidence included original Nazi documents, which were
fisticated by testimony.
The film, The Nazi Plan was a Nazi
film which was used to show the support of the defendants for Nazism.
Even at the trial the defendants were leaving toward in a
hypnotic fashion (Pensco, 159). It also showed the Nazi Peoples
Courts in which defendants were convicted to death with
something which did not deserve the name trial.
The other film Nazi Concentration camps
was a collection of films put together to shed light on the camps.
This video showed atrocities of concentration camps and their efficient
method of killing and disposal.
Another pile of evidence came from official Nazi
Documents. These included documentation on efficiency of concentration
camps, deportation documentation, as well as orders, plans for war
among others. These shed light on purposes and means of acquiring
goals for the Reich.
Also in evidence were pictures. These pictures
which included concentration camps (some with defendants) present),
and pictures of other crimes were produced. Amazingly enough they
were produced by official Nazi photography personnel.
The prosecution at Nuremberg found numerous ways
of making the point. Testimony was always received as truth, (such
as the steam baths at Dachau, and making soap from victims) has
been proven false, even after it helped put Nazi leaders in jail
or at the scaffold. The prosecution had an overwhelming amount of
evidence to convict the defendants. Although, the defense was advocated,
it had, in most instances, no chance at competing with the prosecution.
