Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group: Final Report to Congress

Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group: Final Report to Congress (PDF; 7 MB)

From press release:

The Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group (IWG), formed under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act of 1998 and the Japanese Imperial Government Disclosure Act of 2000, today issued its final report to Congress describing the seven-year, approximately $30-million government-wide effort to locate, declassify, and make publicly available U.S. records of Nazi and Japanese war crimes.

In a Capitol Hill ceremony, the Archivist of the United States, Allen Weinstein, presented the final report on behalf of the IWG, entitled Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group: Final Report to Congress, to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, one of the authors of the 1998 enabling legislation.

“This report,” Weinstein said, “represents an enormous contribution to scholarship relating to both Japanese and Nazi War Crimes. Without support from the Congress, the cooperation of the various Federal agencies, and the dogged determination of the public members, this effort would not have been successfully completed.”
