Project Roadmap

Learn about Nuremberg in a story-driven website for the mobile generation. All phased components are designed to scale as we secure funding.

 

 

PHASE 1: PODCAST MODULES

12 Learning Modules, each with student and teacher podcasts, accompanying primary source photo galleries, and curated resource links for deeper study. Downloadable lesson plans and/or essential classroom questions included for each module.

Phase 2: TRAVELING EXHIBITS

Two types of exhibits for different uses: a core, artifact-based exhibit for museums, and a series of retractable banners that set up easily in schools and smaller spaces. Both exhibits will feature Augmented Reality experiences that drive viewers to our website for deeper engagement.

Phase 3: video stories & MORE

Narrative videos tell the stories of Nuremberg from those who witnessed it, while immersive 3D environments allow visitors to step into Courtroom 600 and outside to the rubble of post-war Germany. And, thousands of supplemental, primary sources will be added to our database.

AN IMMERSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND VIRTUAL MUSEUM COMBINED

 

We envision Courtroom 600 as the future, global hub for in-depth Nuremberg learning materials—a free resource for educators, students, and history enthusiasts in perpetuity.

 

"WELCOME TO 1945" VIDEO

A short animated video will orient visitors to time and place at the end of WWII in Europe—before television, rock ‘n roll, and push button phones. With technology in its infancy, people learned about the war and trials only through print media, radio broadcasts, or newsreel films shown in theaters.

Nuremberg was a symbolic shrine for the Nazi party but was now in ruins—with 20,000 dead still buried under the rubble. This video will open minds for a fascinating story of international cooperation as the world sought justice.

 

HOW WE'LL MEASURE IMPACT

As the Courtroom 600 platform grows, we’ll constantly monitor progress in all channels—innovating to deepen engagement and reach broader audiences.

Preserving the Legacy of Nuremberg

 

“I am excited about the creation of the Courtroom 600 project. As the author of The Origins of Simultaneous Interpretation: The Nuremberg Trial (U Ottawa, Press, 1998), I wish that such a digital resource about the trials had existed at the time of my research.

History is best experienced via first-hand interaction with historical artifacts, and Courtroom 600’s plan to digitize and disseminate the Nuremberg Trial artifacts allows for people everywhere to access them regardless of their ability to travel to archives. This is an important feature of democracy and public education.”
