Abby Mann's riveting drama Judgement at Nuremberg not only brought some the worst Nazi atrocities to public attention, but has become, along with Elie Wiesel's Night and Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl, one of the twentieth century's most important records of the Holocaust. Judgement at Nuremberg centers on a military tribunal convened in Nuremberg, Germany, in which four German judges and prosecutors stand accused of crimes against humanity for their involvement in atrocities committed under the Nazi regime. The play examines questions of individual complicity in immoral actions sought by the government the individual served and is notable for its use of courtroom drama to illuminate individual perfidy and moral compromise in times of violent political upheaval. To this day the Nuremberg trials stand as a model for international criminal tribunals, due in large measure to the spotlight thrown on them by Mann's dramatic interpretation of the historic events. Mann's overwhelming compassion strikes at the heart of human suffering -- his achievement has been to reaffirm humanity and justice. "We who know our guilt must admit it...whatever the pain and humiliation."
