Since Nuremburg in 1945, film has been used both as evidence in human rights trials and as a historical record of such trials as in the cases of Klaus Barbie and Maurice Papon in France and more recent cases elsewhere such as those of Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein. Drawing on archival research, Christian Delage examines both the conditions and the consequences of the use of film as a tool in support of human rights.

Christian Delage is Associate Professor of History at the Université de Paris-VIII and the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. His publications include L’Historien et le film (Gallimard, 2004), co-authored with Vincent Guigueno, and La Vérité par l’image: De Nuremburg au process Milosevic (Denoel, 2006). He is also the director of a number of documentary films including Nuremberg: The Nazis Face Their Crimes (2006), which is due for release shortly on DVD in the US and Canada.
