Arnold Joseph collection

Document | Accession Number: 1999.A.0234

The Arnold Joseph collection consists of correspondence to and from defendants at the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, which Joseph acquired during his military service as a censor. Incoming correspondence from the general public includes a mixture of praise and good wishes for the defendants as well as insults and invectives. In addition to letters to defendants, there are two letters to Hans Berndt Gisevius, who served as a witness for the prosecution, and a postcard to Pastor Martin Niemöller. [Restricted material: Incoming correspondence from defendants' family members relays greetings, love, and support. Outgoing correspondence from defendants to their family members relays greetings, love, and support as well as thoughts on the trial proceedings and reactions to the verdicts and death sentences.]
