Part Of:Record Group 60: General Records of the Department of Justice, 1790 - 2002
Function and Use:This series was artificially created, and consists of copies of selected documents released in compliance with the Nazi War Crimes, and Japanese Imperial Government, Disclosure Acts (Public Laws 105-246 and 105-567). The Acts call for the Interagency Working Group (IWG) to locate, inventory, recommend for declassification, and make available all classified Nazi and Japanese war criminal records, subject to certain specified exceptions. The IWG tasked Federal agencies, including the Army and Air Force, to search their record holdings for relevant war criminal and war crimes documents responsive to personal name and subject terms identified by the IWG. In complying with the disclosure acts, the Army determined that it destroyed some of its records relating to Arthur Rudolph, and the Air Force was unable to locate its file. However, both the Army and Air Force previously provided copies of their records to the Department of Justice's Office of Special Investigations (OSI). At the request of the IWG, OSI selected and copied the documents in this series from the copies supplied to it by the Army and Air Force.
