|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 Office of the Pardon Attorney, 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 Office of the Pardon Attorney selected the records that now make up this series from among its executive clemency case files.|
