The National Council on Jewish Audio-Visual Materials, sponsored by the American Association for Jewish Education, has awarded a citation to the film, “Judgment at Nuremberg,” for its “eloquent and dramatic presentation of the relationship of law to man’s moral obligations,” it was announced today.

The Council, at a session attended by representatives of 41 national Jewish communal and education agencies, also presented a citation to WABC-TV of New York, for its five-nights-a-week, 30-minute coverage of the Eichmann trial, in Jerusalem. The sponsor, Louis J. Glickman, was also cited.

Other awards went to the Keren Hayesod for a 16mm film, “Years of Destiny”; to the Commission on Jewish Education of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations for “Rav and Samuel: Teachers of Talmud”; and to the Bureau of Jewish Education of the Jewish Federation-Council of Los Angeles for outstanding audio-visual services.
