Nuremberg Trial Documents on Display in Berlin

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press via

In a typewritten affidavit, former Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess admitted that "victims were executed and exterminated there by gassing and burning." In handwritten notes from the 1945 interrogation of Robert Ley, the Nazi official blames Germany for its own defeat, saying the country was "too lazy and too incompetent." 

The documents used by prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trials to help convict top Nazis are among a trove of some 500 pages that surfaced last year at a flea market in Tel Aviv. About 20 pages went on display Wednesday at the Berlin Jewish Education Center, where they will be available for the public to see through January 27, Holocaust Remembrance Day, before they are sold at auction in Israel.
