Storyline

One of the last of the films made under the direction of the War Activities Committee. It is a 10 minute documentary produced under the supervision of Ray Kellogg (I)who, at the time, was a Commander in the the Office of Strategic Services(the O.S.S.)which was the forerunner of the C.I.A. It is a compilation of newsreels and captured German films and reported on the pending trial of German's arch-war criminals in Nuremberg, Germany, and as such features many shots of Hitler, Goering, Goebbles and many of the Nazi leaders which, in this corner, doesn't qualify them as cast members.This would be akin to showing President Frank D. Roosevelt as a cast member in each of the, at least, 3000 newsreels he appeared in. They are there from archive footage and not as actors. Glimpses of massacred and descecrated bodies are shown as part of the acts committed by the Nazis during their reign of terror. The procedure for trying war criminals in a world court of justice is explained. The commentary ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Quotes

Narrator: 1945 becomes the year not only of the Nazi's military defeat, but of their public trial - that should serve as an unprecedented warning to those who would plunge the united nations into another criminal war, in defiance of the laws and treaties of peaceful nations who have joined together to outlaw man's greatest inhumanity to man: the crime of war.

That Justice Be Done (1945)

*** (out of 4)

This ten minute short from George Stevens was produced by the War Activities Committee so that people could see the horrid things that Adolf Hitler and Germany were doing in WWII. If you're a fan of Stevens or know anything about him then you already know that him making these shorts during WWII really did change the way he looked at life. This short lasts only ten minutes but there's no question that the director didn't want to shy away from the horrors that were done by Hitler. The documentary discusses what the war trials are for and why it's so important that certain people pay for the crimes that they committed. The documentary also doesn't shy away from the physical torture that was performed on people and we see several graphic photos of victims.
