JERUSALEM (JTA) — The U.S. Department of Justice will publish more than 30 years worth of texts relating to cases against Nazis who entered the United States illegally after World War II.
The department’s Office of Special Investigations, which has been investigating and prosecuting cases against Nazi offenders since 1979, will turn over thousands of pages of court decisions relating to at least 100 Nazi cases to Yad Vashem in Israel, according to a news release from Yad Vashem. An official announcement was scheduled for Tuesday.
The material will be presented in a multi-volume set of books, only three sets of which will be published. One will be available to researchers and the public at Yad Vashem’s Reading Room. The two other sets will be at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and at the OSI.
