Gecko is proud to announce that we have finally completed the digitization and digital restoration of the Nuremberg Trial audio recordings.
Shortly after WW2, in 1945-46, the historical trial of the highest-ranked living Nazis was only partially filmed, but it was entirely recorded on 2,000 16-inch instantaneous discs, for a total duration of around 1,200 hours.
The recordings were then careful kept undisclosed at the International Court of Justice in The Hague for 70 years. In 2018, Gecko was chosen to have the honor and responsibility of safeguarding and restoring the audio content of the trial in high definition digital format.
An outstanding project which took us more than a year to complete in the highest degree of confidentiality.
These recordings of immense historical importance will soon be available to the public, for the first time.
The memory institutions involved in this project are : the International Court of Justice (The Hague, Netherlands), the USHMM (Washington D.C., USA), and the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France).
