LATW is touring the stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film in honor of the 75th anniversary of World War II. A live radio theater-style production, “Judgment at Nuremberg” is a gripping and complex drama that questions the fundamentals of social justice, morality, politics and the pressures of society.

“Judgment at Nuremberg” tells the story of the Nuremberg trials, the 1945-1949 military tribunals carried out by Allied forces to prosecute those responsible for war crimes against Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, the handicapped and those considered inferior to the Aryan race.

Set in the backdrop of a building Cold War, “Judgment at Nuremberg’s” characters finds itself locked in a high-stakes game of shifting alliances and political conflict as they explore their memories of the Holocaust.
