• 1934-1947 FO 1019 British War Crimes Executive, Nuremberg, and Court Contact Committee: Correspondence and Papers

    This series consists of files of the British War Crimes Executive (BWCE) at Nuremberg, and of the Court Contact Committee of that Executive. The BWCE files cover internal administration and liaison with other Allied Government delegations, and include minutes of prosecutors' meetings.

    The files of the Court Contact Committee, which constitute the bulk of the series, are predominantly concerned with applications, submitted on behalf of the defendants, for the calling of witnesses and the production of specific documents. These applications were referred by the International Military Tribunal to the Court Contact Committee, who were required to notify, on behalf of the prosecutors, any objections to the individual applications.
