Jeffrey Mausner Papers of postwar collaboration trials, 1960-1980
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The record group is comprised of postwar legal documents and newspaper articles from the United States depicting the attempts to denaturalize, deport, and/or extradite Nazi war criminals from the United States to European countries or the Soviet Union, to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.  The legal documents present the legal proceedings of the prosecution as they argued to have the war criminals denaturalized, deported, or extradited.  Some of the legal documents provide a brief history of the crimes committed by the defendants, and how these war criminals came to the United States and evaded prosecution for many years.  Multiple court appearances were made concerning each accused Nazi war criminal.  The alleged Nazi war criminals include Otto Ambros, Basil Artishenko, Paul Herman Bluemel, Boleslavs Bogdanovs, Ildefansas Bucmys, General Leon Degrelle, Anatoly Hrusitzky, Konrad Kalejs, Serge Kowlachuk (Serhij Kowalczuk), Georg Leibbrandt, Karl Linnas, Boleslavs Maikovskis, and Otto Albrecht Alfred von Bolschwing.  The newspaper articles included follow the progress of these various legal proceedings of each accused Nazi war criminal.

Materials within the record group include briefs and other legal documents used in court proceedings, depositions, witness statements, original Nazi documents used as evidence in court, court rulings and orders, newspaper articles, and other documents relating to prosecution of Nazi war criminals in the United States.  Materials are digitized.
