Nazi Torture of Jews in Camps Shown in Films at Nuremberg Trial; More Evidence Planned

November 30, 1945
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Films showing how the Nazis tortured Jewish and other inmates in the Belsen, Dachau, Buchenwald and other camps were run off today in the court-room where the international war crimes trial are being held.

The presentation of further documentary evidence concerning Nazi crimes against Jews which was scheduled for today has been postponed for ten days by the prosecution since more time will be needed for preparation than originally planned.

Hans Frank, former governor of Poland during the Nazi occupation and one of the twenty defentants, was seen to be near collapse when the films were shown. Hjalmar Schacht, former Riechsbank president, turned his face away from the screen and never once looked at the pictures. The other leaders of the Nazi regime, including Goering, Hess and Ribbentrop watched the films attentively.
