Biography

Historical Note

The International Military Tribunal was established after World War II to prosecute the most notorious German war criminals in what has come to be known as the Nurnberg trials. Thirteen war crimes trials in all were held, twelve of which were held upon indictments filed by Brigadier General Telford Taylor, United States Chief of Counsel for War Crimes, acting on behalf of the United States of America. The first of these trials, United States versus Karl Brandt, et al., concerned medical matters. It is the documentation of this trial which comprises this collection.
