The US Friends of The Wiener Holocaust Library are pleased to be hosting an event featuring the screening of  Filmmakers for the Prosecution, a documentary produced by Sandra Schulberg that retraces the steps of two men, Budd and Stuart Schulberg, tasked with gathering evidence for the Nuremberg Trials.

Adapted by director Jean-Christoph Klotz from Ms. Schulberg’s monograph, the film retraces the hunt for film evidence that helped convict the accused at the Nuremberg Trials.

The screening, at UTA in Beverly Hills, will be followed by a conversation between Sandra Schulberg and journalist Sharon Rosen Leib. They will discuss the significance of the documentary and the legacies of those who laid the foundations of our knowledge about the Holocaust through their courageous efforts to collect and safeguard the evidence.

Also, Dr. Toby Simpson, Director of The Wiener Holocaust Library in London, will discuss the Library’s role in gathering key intelligence and documentation for the prosecution at Nuremberg. The motion pictures and documentary evidence presented in the court room continue to shape our understanding of the Holocaust to this day.

Learn more about the work of The Wiener Holocaust Library, now marking its 90 years of operation, in a drinks reception following the screening and speakers.

About the Speakers

An independent film activist, Sandra Schulberg founded the IFP (Independent Filmmaker Project), co-founded First Run Features, and now heads the IndieCollect film preservation campaign. Her producer credits include the Oscar-nominated Quills, Sundance Grand Prize winner Waiting for the Moon, and Beth’s B Exposed.

Her work with Nuremberg has allowed her to collaborate with jurists and criminal justice NGOs around the world. Sandra Schulberg led the team that restored Stuart Schulberg’s historic film about the Nuremberg trial, Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today [The Schulberg/Waletzky Restoration], a project that took 5 years to complete with the collaboration of archives in the U.S, Germany, and Holland.

Sharon Rosen Leib is a former Deputy Attorney General in California’s Department of Justice, an award-winning freelance journalist and contributing writer for the Forward and the Times of Israel. Her recent essays about Hollywood’s Jewish founders went global – translated into Spanish, French, German and Hebrew and were referenced by multiple publications including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone.

Dr Toby Simpson has been Director of The Wiener Holocaust Library since 2019. He completed his PhD in history at the University of Cambridge supervised by Sir Richard Evans with a thesis on criminology and post-war criminal justice reforms in West and East Germany. He led the project Testifying to the Truth: Eyewitnesses to the Holocaust which catalogued, digitised, and translated over 1,000 eyewitness accounts, gathered by the WHL between 1954 and 1961. Dr Simpson joined the WHL in 2011, setting up a new programme of exhibitions, tours, and events.
