US case files. Auschwitz concentration camp, Record Group 338

Document | Accession Number: 1991.058 | RG Number: RG-06.005.07M

Consists of a war crimes case file relating to the Auschwitz concentration camp, crimes allegedly committed by camp personnel, medical experiments, lists of war crimes suspects, and testimonies by Auschwitz survivors. Includes documents relating to Drs. Josef Mengele and Friedrich Entress, and to Konrad Reinhard, a Roma who collaborated with the Germans.

The earliest war crimes cases were investigated by war crimes sections under the Staff Judge Advocates of the 1st, 3rd, and 7th U.S. Armies and under the commanding generals of the Eastern and Western Military Districts. The war crimes program was centralized in the office of the Theater Judge Advocate, U.S. Forces European Theater in 1945. In 1946 the operation became the 7708 War Crimes Group, and it was deactivated on 30 June 1948. Completion of the cases and execution of sentencing after this time was carried out by a war crimes unit in the Judge Advocate Division of the United States European Command (EUCOM).
