Robert Jackson, a 53-year-old Supreme Court Justice from New York, appeared before the Nuremberg Tribunal on November 20, 1945. He was the chief prosecutor in the first-ever trial to put an entire national government in the dock.

The Nuremberg Trials, from the PBS American Experience collection, features rare archival material and eyewitness accounts to recreate this dramatic tribunal; an event guaranteeing that crimes against humanity would never again go unpunished
