The Nuremberg War Crimes Trials brought 22 Nazi officials to court in 1945-1946. The Donovan Collection, housed at Cornell University Law School, is made up of nearly 150 bound volumes of transcripts and other materials from those trials. The Nuremberg Project consists of digitized versions of select documents from the Donovan Collection along with commentary by Holocaust and Nuremberg scholars.
These documents come from the personal archive of General William J. Donovan
who served as special assistant to the U.S. Chief of Counsel during the
International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. The International Military
Tribunal was convened following the conclusion of World War II to hold
accountable the principal perpetrators of the Holocaust. The Tribunal
addressed four counts: conspiracy, crimes against peace, war crimes (including
genocide), and crimes against humanity. In addition to selected trial
transcripts, Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion solicits commentary
from Holocaust and Nuremberg scholars.
Women's Studies Content
The Nuremburg Project has slight content for women's studies issues. However, what is found here is important to study of women in the Holocaust, and this text archive should not be overlooked for that purpose. See Pius XII and the Jews and The Kristallnacht Documents.
Searching in the Nuremberg Project is limited to the “find in this document” facility in Adobe Reader.
