The Evidence

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 People’s Court’s in which defendant’s 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.
