|Title:||Government Code and Cypher School: German Police Section: Decrypts of German Police Communications during Second World War|
Information relating to concentration camps such as Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Dachau and on the Russian Front. The series also contains details of the results and losses of allied bombing raids and allied aircraft losses, prisoners of war (both captures and escapes) and German police operations against allied agents and partisans. Also included are verbatim German police messages for the years 1942-1945. These are contained in 27 volumes as pieces 17-43 and cover the years 1942-1945.
A second, probably final, batch of German police records released in early 1998, containing pieces 63-101, is headed by hard copy Vol XIII of the Government Code and Cypher School Air and Military History which lists German police atrocities in the field in Russia.
