Scope and content

"The records of the War Crimes Commission in the United Nations Archives consist of: minutes, documents and reports of the Commission and its Committees, the Research Office, the Far Eastern and Pacific Sub-Commission; further there are periodical lists of War Criminals, Suspects, Witnesses (including approximately 37,000 names) and related material of the main Commission and of the Far Eastern and Pacific Sub-Commission; documented is also some correspondence, mainly with various National Offices. The more voluminous part of the documentation of the War Crimes Commission are records submitted by Member Governments, other National Authorities and Military Tribunals: some 8,000 charge files and related material; periodical lists of about 37,000 War Criminals, Security Suspects and Witnesses; reports of National Military Tribunals; transcripts of proceedings and documents of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. Finding aids in the form of indexes are part of the above enumerated records. Files and boxes under this series were re-processed into various series under Sub-fonds AG-042-001, AG-042-002 and AG-042-003. TRIM box numbers (starting with S-1804-) as well as previous file numbers were maintained however. So although this Series is no longer in use per se, the box numbers now under other Series still use "S-1804.""
