Documenting Nuremberg

HLS Library digitizes more than 1 million pages of Nuremberg Trial documents


Nazi defendants in the first of the 13 Nuremberg war crimes trials on Nov. 11, 1945.

The Harvard Law School Library recently introduced its Nuremberg Trials Project, making accessible to the general public for the first time its materials related to the trials of military and political leaders of Nazi Germany and other accused war criminals. The site, nuremberg.law.harvard.edu, includes trial transcripts, briefs, document books, evidence files and other papers from the library's collection of approximately 1 million pages of documents. Now in the first phase of the project, related to Case 1 of the United States Nuremberg Military Tribunals, the library plans to digitize most of its collection and present it online over the next 10 years.
