After World War II, the US Army commissioned the Schulberg brothers to collect film evidence of Nazi crimes for use at the Nuremberg Trials. This is the story of the resulting film "Nuremberg, Its Lesson for Today", which was, however, withdrawn from the public domain only a short time later for political reasons and sank into oblivion, and also its makers Budd and Stuart Schulberg. The trial of the main war criminals of the Nazi regime was the first of its kind in which film was used extensively as evidence in the jurisdiction.
