Audible brings to life through dramatic performance the 1945-1946 radio broadcast reports covering the greatest courtroom drama of the 20th century - the Nuremberg trials. The original broadcasts have been lost forever, but the verbatim text - written by Harold Burson, founding chairman of one of the world’s leading public relations firms, Burson Marsteller, who at the time was a reporter for the Armed Forces Network - has been newly interpreted by an ensemble of some of our fine actors. This original production, published here for the first time and only in audio, blends journalism, history, re-enactment and performance, and reimagines what it was like to experience first-hand this groundbreaking trial and to witness close-up some of the most infamous figures in recent world history: members of the Nazi ruling class. The production is being released on the anniversary of the opening of the first and most famous trial, November 19, 1945.

Definitely. Everyone should want to know what became of the men who committed arguably the most atrocious crimes of all time.
Yes. As I said, it was very factual and informative. I am particularly interested in the history of the world wars and I learned a lot from listening to the Nuremberg trials.
My favourite part was listening to how they were all sentenced to death, except Hitler, who had already taken the cowards way out. It was a reminder that these men were not brave soldiers, but cowardly mice. They were revealed to the world and justice was done in the right way, in the way it should have been done; Lawful and dignified.
