Nuremberg Trials Project Recipient of NEH Award

Nuremberg Trials Project Recipient of NEH Award

The Harvard Law School Library’s Nuremberg Trials Project is pleased to announce its selection as a recipient of a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources grant from the National Endownment for the Humanities in the amount of $97,326 to continue its work of making Web-accessible its archive of all 13 Nuremberg Trials.  Specifically, the award is earmarked for the processing and Web-posting of the materials from Case 9, the trial dealing with the prosecution of crimes committed by Nazi SS Einsatzgruppen (mobile death squads) during WWII.  The award period runs from May 2017 through April 2018, and will support the in-depth analysis and description of the Case 9 trial materials, conversion of the Case 9 transcript to machine-readable format, and the posting of these materials and attendant document images as well as related background information to the project’s publicly accessible website: http://nuremberg.law.harvard.edu

With the addition of Case 9 to the currently available Cases 1-4 and 7, the Project website will have added an important new thematic area to its online materials, another milestone as it continues its goal of making accessible to the public the materials from all 13 trials over the course of the next few years.
