Memory and Forgetting. “We must never forget that the record on which we judge these defendants today is the record on which history will judge us tomorrow.” These words, spoken at the outset of the Nuremburg trials on November 21, 1945, by US Chief of Counsel Robert H. Jackson, seem to animate Marcel Ophüls’s stunning 1976 documentary The Memory of Justice.

Silent Tuesdays. The Last Volunteer was borne out of the American public’s combined unease and romantic fascination with Europe’s complicated politics leading to the First World War. Its story—an overworked monarch seeks the simple life and finds an honest emotional link with a commoner, while enemy spies and betrayers within his own government create conflict in his absence—directly mirrored American and European concerns of the time.

RIP Romero. A military plane crashes in Evans, Pennsylvania, releasing a deadly virus that affects the infected in one of two ways: death or insanity.
