Arrangement:Arranged alphabetically by name.
Function and Use:This series consists of records 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 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to search its 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 Acts, the CIA selected the records that now make up this series from among its holdings of records of predecessor agencies. Because the IWG encouraged agencies to send whole files and whole file sets, the series may include files that are only marginally relevant, or irrelevant, to war crimes.
