In the 1930s, the American public, recalling the losses of World War I, was loath to take seriously the menace posed by Hitler and his aggressive moves. Many Americans did not face up to the German threat even after the start of World War II when German troops overran much of Europe. Strong voices, including that of Charles Lindbergh, joined with "America First" organizations in asserting that the war was none of America's business; that England would fall anyhow; and that Hitler was not a menace. Through "lend-lease" and other measures Roosevelt aided England and increased American preparedness.

Worldwide curiosity about the Nuremberg Trials was satisfied in part by courtroom photographs and drawings. George Biddle, brother of an American judge on the International Military Tribunal, made these two sketches as an artist for Look magazine. On the left is Hans Fritzsche, a mid-level official who directed radio propaganda, he was acquitted on all counts but later convicted by a German court. On the right is Reichsmarschall Hermann Göering, who had commanded the German air forces. After his conviction he committed suicide. The photograph shows the prisoners in the dock. Front row: Göering, Rudolf Hess, Joachim von Ribbentrop, Wilhelm Keitel, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Alfred Rosenberg, Hans Frank, Wilhelm Frick, Julius Streicher, Walther Funk and Hjalmar Schacht. Back row: Karl Dönitz, Erich Raeder, Baldur von Schirach, Fritz Sauckel, Alfred Jodl, Franz von Papen, Artur Seyss-Inquart, Albert Speer, Konstantin von Neurath, and Fritzsche.
