Il processo di Norimberga (a partire dal film “Vincitori e vinti” )

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The movie Judgement at Nuremberg (1961) is deeply analyzed, not only to describe the real trial and case (the Case Feldenstein-Katzenberger) it depicts, namely the one involving prominent lawyers (judges, prosecutors and ministry of justice officials) of the Nazi era, but also for some paramount features which help to illustrate the psychological forces allowing educated people not to perceive inhumanity, thanks to the distance between themselves and the victims. The movie is thus offers a vivid representation of what Stanley Milgram in his well-known experiment tried to prove just in 1961, namely that inhumanity is function of distance: physical but above all social and psychological. The responsibility of highly educated men is increased if, as it is believed, culture should allow to overcome distances between people and situations and also understand what is beyond one's own immediate line of sight.
