Nuremberg Tribunals Project: Trial 9

The processing of Trial 9 of the Nuremberg Military Tribunals for open online access, including 18,000 pages from approximately 3,600 documents related to the Nazi mobile death squads known as the Einsatzgruppen.

The Harvard Law School Library owns and manages approximately one million pages of documents relating to the trial of military and political leaders of Nazi Germany before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) and the subsequent twelve trials of other accused Nazi war criminals before the United States Nuremberg Military Tribunals (NMT) during the period 1945-9. To preserve the contents of these now-fragile documents and to provide expanded access to this material, the Library has undertaken a long-term, multi-stage digitization project, an open-access initiative to create, present and make accessible the Library's full archive to a broad audience, including the general public both in the U.S. and abroad, high school and college students, and researchers in fields related to the Trials. We are applying for funding for a one-year implementation grant to support the work required to add an additional trial—Trial 9—to the current five trials we have already completed.
