    The name of "Malthausen" in body text and tags is incorrect. The concentration camp in question here was called Mauthausen-Gusen.

    The man seen at 01:04, wearing the number 13, is August Eigruber, the former Gauleiter of Upper Austria.

    "General Prickett" is Maj. Gen. Fay B Prickett.

    The trial depicted here ran from 29 March to 13 May 1946. As well as the 58 Nazis sentenced to hang, a further 3 were given life imprisonment.

    Note that the soundtrack is nothing but a continuous loud whistle.
