But what are some details regarding this trial. I know they used forged evidence, that the Defense refused to cross examine witnesses, that the confessions were extracted by weak "torture". But what else and what specifically was questionable about the procedures in the trial.
What's the evidence for the defence REFUSING to cross examine witnesses?
Oh, they definitely presented evidence in the form of affidavits and "eyewitnesses" who testified, but- it is important to remember- this was a show trial, and the evidence presented- such as the ridiculous shrunken heads-was part of the show. The purpose of the show was not to evaluate evidence against the individual defendants per se, but to demonize the NSDAP regime as well as the German people in the eyes of gullible westerners.
Actually it seems that the main motivation for the show trial was actually pinning the blame for the war on the Germans. The Holocaust Tales were more for spicing the whole thing up and add more justification (the demonizing and all). If the Nazis were so evil and gas the Jews, sure they'd also plot unwarranted wars against other countries.
Don't forget that there was quite some opposition towards war with Germany in Western countries. And those people may have inserted the question whether the sacrifices and damages were really justified to bring Germany down.
