Abby Mann¹s JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG, directed by Sarah Albertson was originally made for TV¹s Playhouse 90, then a multi Academy Award winning film in 1961 and finally a Broadway play in 2001. The story focuses on Ernst Janning, one of the most influential German legal minds of the pre-World War II era, and other influential Nazi judges who face a military tribunal in postwar Nuremberg for their complicity in the Nazi¹s crimes against humanity. Issues at the forefront of this trial reverberate through history and challenge humanity to this day as we now struggle with decisions about excluding people because of ethnicity or religion in our own country. "Incisive, blistering, thought provoking. Cries out powerfully to our own time in countless ways." - Chicago Sun Times "Gives oratory the muscle, sweat and high stakes of a last man standing prize fight." - New York Times
