The present volume is the first of two supplements designed to complete the publication of documents gathered by the American and British prosecuting staffs at the International Military Tribunal in Nurnberg. While most of the documents in this collection were used in cross-examining those of the major German war criminals who took the witness stand in their own defense, this volume, like its predecessors, also incorporates documents not offered in evidence during the trial but which nevertheless are of general historic interest. It includes, in addition, the Closing Addresses of the American and British Chief Prosecutors and the Closing Addresses for the United States on the Indicated Organizations, all of which set forth in bold relief the main features of the prosecution case.

Because of unavoidable limitations, it has not been possible to realize the hopes expressed in the Preface to the original series, that these supplementary volumes might include the documents introduced in evidence by the prosecuting staffs of France and the Soviet Union. However, in order to provide at least some indications of the important contributions of these nations to the total body of prosecution evidence, this volume contains the Closing Addresses of the French and Soviet Chief Prosecutors, which summarize the high points of their evidence and show the emphasis and flavor of their

Moreover, the official transcript of the trial, which the United States Military Government of Germany is now publishing in English as well as in French, Russian and German, will contain English translations of excerpts and in some cases the full text of the French and Soviet documents as read into the record, as well as the full text of all the prosecution exhibits in their original language—in most cases German.

For practical reasons the documents in this Supplement are arranged, as in previous volumes, in numerical order within the various document series. Although this system has obvious disadvantages, arrangement in chronological order would be even less satisfactory, and arrangement by subject matter would either be misleading or involve endless duplication, inasmuch as, many documents deal with several different and unrelated topics. But in order to assist the reader interested in documents bearing on a given subject, a careful cross-index at the end of the volume classifies all the documents under topic headings corresponding to the subjects of the various topical and individual defendant briefs in Volumes I and II. By grouping the documents listed at the end of these briefs with the parallel list of references at the end of the present volume, one may quickly find his way to all the documents pertinent to his particular interest. For example, all the materials relative to the Austrian Anschluss may speedily be located by consulting the index following the brief on “Aggression Against Austria” Vol. I (p. 505), and by reference to the same topic in the cross-index at the end of the present volume (p. 1333).

Finally, acknowledgement must be made once again to the Department of State and the War Department for their generous allocation of the funds to make possible the present volume and its companion, Supplement B, which is now in the course of preparation. 6 August 1947
