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.

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.
