Description

Summary

Transcripts of pre-trial interrogations, mostly conducted by Miller, and statements taken under oath for the Nuremberg Trials relating chiefly to the indictment against I.G. Farbenindustrie. These interrogations and statements concern industrial productions, 1930-1945, the Four-Year Plan, mobilization, propoganda, intelligence organizations, connection with the Nazi Party, slave labor, and concentration camps, especially Auschwitz. They do not represent a complete record of the investigation and indictment of I.G. Farben.

In addition there are 75 hard-bound copies of interrogation summaries concerning various divisions of the Nuremberg Trials (SS, Ministries, I.G. Farben, Krupp, Dresdner Bank, Military High Command, Industries, etc.) The Series is numbered from 1 to 4856.

Transcripts are in German; summaries are in English.
