Prosecutions in the Soviet-Occupied Zone of Germany (subsequently German Democratic Republic) against perpetrators of Nazi-era crimes. Victims were Jews, the mentally ill, prisoners of war, and other groups in ghettos, partisan areas, camps, and killing centers. Perpetrators were in the SS, the Einsatzgruppen, police battalions and regiments, the euthanasia program, the court system, ghetto and camp administrations, the Wehrmacht, and the latter's Field Police (Feldgendarmerie) and Secret Field Police (Geheime Feldpolizei).
