Could you help me identify this photograph?

enter image description here

All I know is that it was taken shortly after World War 2.

  • Welcome to the site. That's a kind of fun question/puzzle that is also nice to have here. – Drux Apr 4 '13 at 20:13
  • Could it be the NAZI Nurenburg trials? The military police men? – Pat Lightfoot Oct 19 '13 at 4:29

I'd say it's the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (IMTFE or Tokyo Trials) from 1946. Compare e.g. the wall pattern elements between your picture and this one (source: Wikipedia):

    It's quite clearly the left-hand wall in this photo. +1 – Maximus Minimus Apr 4 '13 at 20:15
  • Yup. The bench rows are even identical. – T.E.D. Apr 4 '13 at 20:37
  • +1. The wall patterns are actually a mirror image, but that's just because this image has been flipped (check out the MP arm bands). – Ergwun Apr 5 '13 at 5:12

It is the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.

Check the wall pattern and light: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IMTFE_court_chamber.jpg
