Spandau, the most expensive prison in the world

Seven bare-chested men with their hands behind their backs walk around a lime tree in an untended garden. These seven men are Former Nazi top officials sentenced to prison at the Nuremberg trials. The garden is that of Spandau Prison. A prison to match the excess of the Nazi crimes, in which more than 350 civil and military personnel employed only for their detention.

This prison with all its excess and privilege, but also power play in the midst of the Cold War, is a stage in which the greatest criminals of the planet become political instruments.
