View of defendants listening to prosecution at Nazi War Crimes Trials in Nuremberg, Germany

In the War Crimes Trials of Nazi leaders at Nuremberg, Germany, before the International Military Tribunal, the prosecution charges the defendants with conspiring to destroy the independence of other nations. Hermann Goering, seated in the extreme left of the defendants' box with his chin in his hand, listens as does Joachim von Ribbentrop, third from the left, who was active in framing Nazi pre-war policy.
