Exhibition concept

A conscious decision was made to display few if any artifacts, in accordance with the documentary nature of the exhibition. Instead, the exhibition provides an objective description of the events that transpired here, so that visitors can form their own "judgment" of the prosecution of Nazi crimes.

The only artifacts on display are two parts of the original docket, a crate used for transporting documents, and the electronic control cabinet that was used to regulate the power supply in the courtroom. Original video and audio clips that convey a vivid impression of the trials are presented in various areas of the exhibition. In addition, visitors can obtain extensive information at the various media terminals. This feature allows individuals to deepen their knowledge of the Nuremberg Trials.

However, the most important exhibit is the courtroom itself. As of 1 March 2020, Courtroom 600 is no longer being used for trials. For you that means that up from now, you will be able to see Courtroom 600 much more often when you visit the Memorium Nuremberg Trials. However, it can still be the case now that Courtroom 600 cannot be seen due to events happening there.
