Christian Delage

Christian Delage is a historian and filmmaker. A Professor at the University Paris 8, he also teaches at Sciences Po Paris, the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and the Cardozo Law School in New York.

Since the mid-1990s, he has worked on the history of the Holocaust, particularly archival film footage of the liberation of the Nazi camps and the Nuremberg Trials, considering the consequences of using film for the purposes of justice and memory.

In 2007, his documentary, Nuremberg: The Nazis Facing Their Crimes, premiered at Lincoln Center. He has since worked on a number of films and exhibitions: Delage served as a policy advisor on the filming of the Khmer Rouge trials and produced Cameras in the Courtroom, a documentary discussing the issue of filming trials. He has also shaped the permanent exhibition of Compiegne's Internment and Deportation Memorial, and, in 2010, a special exhibition for the Shoah Memorial in Paris Filming the camps. John Ford, Samuel Fuller and George Stevens, from Hollywood to Nuremberg. The exhibition was presented in New York at the Museum of Jewish Heritage from March to October 2012.

Delage is also the author of nine books, two of which are translated into English:  Caught on Camera: Film in the Courtroom: from the Nuremberg Trials to the Trials of the Khmer Rouge (University of Pennsylvania Press, August 2013); The Scene of the Mass Crime, co-edited by Peter Goodrich (Routledge, 2012).
