Movie with cyanide suicide in a prison cell

Hi folks,

I'm trying to remember this movie I saw many years ago..

The only thing I can remember is this prisoner that asks the guards to be executed by a firing squad, but they refuse to do so. They are going to hang him instead. Since death by hanging would be dishonorable, he prefers instead to commit suicide in his own cell, with some cyanide that he hid in the bricks..

Does anyone know this movie?

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like the movie "Nuremberg"(2000) It's a two part mini-series, but there have been many movies made on the subject. It's based on the true story of Nazi Herman Goering and the Nuremberg trials.

'Göring commits suicide after his request to be executed by firing squad is denied.
....he managed to conceal the poison cyanide pill in his cell.
