Nuremberg Document Book
Robert Jackson, U.S. Chief of Counsel

Displayed here is the document book used at the trial of Nazi
leader Martin Bormann (1900-1945?), who was tried in absentia and
sentenced to death by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg
in 1946. A key associate of Adolf Hitler, Bormann implemented the
racist programs of National Socialism, especially the persecution
and extermination of European Jewry. His exact fate after the war
is unclear. He was officially declared dead in 1973, when a forensic
expert determined that a skeleton uncovered at an excavation in
West Germany was most likely Bormann's.
