Ending

Judge Haywood and two other judges to preside over the trial of Nazis for their actions during the war, post WWII. The prosecutor argues the accused cannot claim ignorance. In closing arguments, the defense argues that the world stood by and did nothing as Hitler built Nazi Germany (after all, the world was in a hurry to placate Hitler, despite Hitler being open about what he intended to do). The Tribunal found the case was proven, also saying that others in Germany share the responsibility, and all are found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Judge Ives dissented. Ernst Janning met with Haywood, expresses he felt the verdict was just, but said he didn't know the camps would come to this. Haywood tells him, "You came to know that, the first time you sentenced a man to death you knew to be innocent."

In all, 99 in all were found guilty, and by 1961, none were still in prison.

The longest German word I've read recently was Vergangenheitbewaltegung, which translates roughly as "coping with the past." Just thought I'd share.
