We’re a non-profit organization dedicated to
inspiring and educating future generations
through experiential storytelling.

By sharing and learning from the past, we’ll
connect communities, foster empathy,
and help create a culture of peace,
understanding and tolerance.

We'll push technology in service of the narrative,
constructing stories in immersive digital
environments never before possible.

Transformative Storytelling,
For Social Change

Our first digital project is a
behind the scenes look at the Nuremberg Trials,
where Nazi war criminals were brought
to justice between 1945–49.


In a 3D virtual experience,
see how the international community lived
and worked in a city that was
90% bombed to ruins.
Learn how journalists reported events
when radio and newspapers were the
only ways to share the story.
Witness the prosecution’s use of film, pictures
and thousands of documents that

buried the Nazis with their own evidence

CONNECTING PAST TO PRESENT

Courtroom600.org will also link WW2 people and events to contemporary pop culture through an interactive "did you know" format.


What's the connection between...

From a visually rich portal, link to curated lists of related films, websites, books and articles about the Holocaust, WW2, stolen Nazi gold, plundered art and wine, the birth of international law – and much more.



Connect with a global, intergenerational community
and share your perspective on what the lessons of Nuremberg mean to you.

Notes from an Intern, 2018-19

When people ask me what activities I engage in, I usually receive a puzzled look when I answer with “grant writing.” From rescuing endangered species to purchasing life-saving seizure-detecting devices for patients with epilepsy, grant writing has cultivated itself into something much larger than I ever expected. Looking back, one might say I was quite… Read More
