Permanent Exhibit: Nuremberg Photos by Raymond D’Addario
Raymond D’Addario was one of a few photographers assigned by the Army Pictorial Service to document the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany. On November 21, 1945, senior Nazi officials took their seats in Courtroom 600 in the Palace of Justice. Ray’s photograph of the main defendants sitting in the docket surrounded by U.S. military guards has become the iconic symbol of the trial.
