|Part Of:||Record Group 65: Records of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1896 - 2008|
|Arrangement:||Arranged alphabetically in four segments: index cards for Nazi war crimes records, index cards for Japanese Imperial Government records, index papers for Nazi war crimes records, and index papers for Japanese Imperial Government records.|
|Function and Use:||This artificially created series consists of indices to 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 an 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 FBI, 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 Acts, the FBI selected the records that now make up the individual series from all of its Central Records System records. Because the IWG encouraged agencies to send whole files and whole file sets, the series may include indices to files that are only marginally relevant, or irrelevant, to war crimes.|
