Engaging viewers with video stories, 3D immersion, and a wealth of global learning resources.
BEHIND THE SCENES AT NUREMBERG
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
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.
Multiple points of entry to WWII and the Holocaust will be accessible through Courtroom 600, a state-of-the-art virtual museum that’s story-driven and focused on the human experience.
Visitors create their own journey paths based on personal interests such as journalism, law, film/photography, art history, psychology, the Holocaust, and military history.
An immersive learning experience is then tailored to that person’s specific interests — and in their chosen language.
Courtroom 600 will preserve history, push technology, and become a trusted resource for global educators.
