Audible, Inc., the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audio-books and other spoken-word content is releasing a new audio production entitled Report from Nuremberg, a new audio production which blends journalism and history together to bring one as close as possible to the war trial of the century. The text of the audio-book is based on reporting by Burson-Marsteller co-founder Harold Burson (at left in 1955) and his colleagues who covered the trial for the American Forces (radio) Network, originally broadcast in 1945-46. The text has never before been published, in any format; the original broadcasts are lost and no longer available.
In conjunction with the release of the audio-book, Burson will donate his Nuremberg transcripts to The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Burson will also be interviewed by the Museum for its oral history archives. Audible will also donate the audio recording to the Museum.
“There are fewer and fewer survivors alive. So how do we remember? Every one of us has an obligation, as it is our obligation to remember the evil that the Nazis perpetrated,” noted Holocaust Historian Ruth Lichtenstein.
Burson has received numerous honors and awards, and was named “the most influential PR person in the 20th century” in a survey conducted by PR Week.
