War Crimes Tribunal documents, 1945
#1

I put most of the info in the title already, but this is a scan of a 4-page document which I was fortunate enough to obtain recently. It is an original English translation which was supplied to both prosecutors and defence attorneys during the War Crimes Tribunals in 1945. There were fewer than 20 of these printed, and at one time this one belonged to the Berlin lawyer of Albert Speers. This particular testimony pertains to an SS General Lorner in regards to incoming prisoners and supplies at several concentration camps. I don't know how well the scan will show details, but one column lists 90,000 prisoners coming from "anti-jewish action" in Hungary. One thing about the Nazis...they kept impeccable records, which helped to hang them after the war!

I have this thing in plastic AND inside a frame, as it is still in great condition aside from some yellowing and a darkened staple. A great piece of history, albeit a bit creepy.

ps- Guess the scan didn't turn out so you could read it...sorry! :pdt33:
