Function and Use:This series was artificially created, and consists of extracts and complete 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 Department of the Treasury, 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 disclosure acts, the Department of the Treasury selected and copied documents from throughout its various file systems.
