L.A. Theatre Works, Judgment at Nuremberg

Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.
Camp Concert Hall, Booker Hall of Music

As the world commemorates the 75th anniversary of World War II, and as politics continue to infiltrate human rights and social justice issues worldwide, L.A. Theatre Works tours one of the great courtroom dramas of the last century: Judgment at Nuremberg. Originally a riveting teleplay, Judgment at Nuremberg became an AcademyTM Award-winning film and a stage play that is both surprising and unsettling.

Judgment at Nuremberg poses a number of difficult questions: How can indefensible crimes be defended? How does a judge, committed to the law, enforce immoral and vicious crimes against humanity? Why, in the aftermath of WWII, did America pressure the courts to be lenient on the defendants? And, critically, what does America do when our foreign policy interests clash with our stated beliefs in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
