"The Verdict" - An official poster detailing the verdict of each of the 19 Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials, and their reaction upon hearing the verdict. Issued by the Allied forces at the time of verdict [Nuremberg, October 1946]. English.

The poster details the sentence of each defendant and their reaction in court immediately after the verdict was heard, such as: "Hermann Göring was convicted of conspiracy, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Sentenced to death. He flushed at the verdict. Joachim von Ribbentrop was convicted of the same crimes, received a death sentence. He sat motionless, eyes half closed, lips tightly shut. William Keitel also convicted of crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity, sentenced to death. He stood upright taking the verdict in a military manner and strode smartly from the dock... Julius Streicher convicted of crimes against humanity received the death penalty. He stopped chewing his gum when he grasped the court's decision...". And so the other defendants.

24x16 cm. Very good condition.
