Function and Use:This artificially created series was 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 National Security Agency / Central Security Service (NSA / CSS), 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 NSA / CSS paraphrased information, printed documents from microfilm, copied documents, and selected original documents and translations from throughout its various records holdings.
