PROJECT ROADMAP

PHASE 3

Engaging viewers with video stories, 3D immersion, and a wealth of global learning resources.

BEHIND THE SCENES AT NUREMBERG

Narrative Videos
True, never-before told stories from those who witnessed history. Multiple points of view will present the challenges of mounting trials and working in war-ravaged Germany—legal, military, and logistical

3D Environments for total digital immersion
Step inside Courtroom 600, the major war criminals jail wing, and outside into the ruins of post-war Germany

Primary Source Photo Gallery enhancement
Addition of thousands of global photos, documents, and artifacts catalogued and made searchable

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

Narratives in first-person perspective using actors set in Nuremberg locations. Here are a few stories we’ll tell:

  • Jewish German refugee turned interpreter, who translated during interrogations of Hitler’s henchmen responsible for killing his family

  • United States Chief Prosecutor, a Supreme Court justice who crafted trial strategy using actual Nazi documents as evidence

  • Soldier turned courtroom guard who fought his way through Germany before being assigned to Nuremberg

  • Architect and design lead who pioneered the renovation of Courtroom 600 in a new configuration for the world’s stage

  • Prison psychologist and psychiatrist, who monitored the emotional state of Nazi prisoners, gaining insights into their personal and professional lives

  • Hitler’s designated successor who provides his perspective on “victor’s justice,” a decades-long drug addiction, and his decisions that led to millions suffering and dying

EXPANDED PRIMARY SOURCE PHOTO GALLERIES

As the Courtroom 600 platform grows, photo galleries will expand to include a broader array of easily searchable, primary source materials from global sources.

Phase 3 will include research, cataloguing, and uploading thousands of documents to our website, along with ongoing maintenance and innovation of our platform to align with future technology advances.

 

IMMERSIVE 3D ENVIRONMENTS

Imagine a virtual field trip to the ruins of post-war Germany where you can step into 3D environments, watch short video modules, and follow engaging, interactive learning paths about the people, places, and events central to the trials.

Pictured is a 360° concept animation of Courtroom 600 which could be developed for Augmented or Virtual Reality applications.

We’ll continue to explore new avenues of storytelling + tech to immerse next generations in the legacy of Nuremberg.

 

LONG-TERM GOALS

Future plans include translation into multiple languages and live theatrical experiences that bring the lessons of Nuremberg to life for broader global audiences.
