A page from one of three scapbooks containing photographs taken and assembled by Herman Emil Klappert, Jr. (donor's father) during the Nuremberg Trial.

First Lieutenant Herman Emil Klappert, Jr. (also known as "Hek" to his friends and family) was a photographer with the US Army Signal Corps who was documenting the Nuremberg trials with still photography and motion picture film. Upon his return to the United States, he assembled a three volume "scapbook" of the Trials that he titled "Nurnberg 1946," Volume III also includes photographs of other sites in Germany. The albums consist almost entirely of photographs that he printed himself in Germany and after he returned home to West Hempstead, NY. Also included in the albums are original autographs of the defendants and other principal figures of the trial, identification cards issued to Hek, pages from the program guide handed out at the trial, and prints of motion picture film.
