Abstract:This trial has become known as the "Einsatzgruppen Case" because all of the defendants were charged with criminal conduct arising out of their functions as members of the Einsatzgruppen. The German term "Einsatzgruppen" may be roughly translated "Special Task Forces". Four such special units were formed in May 1941 just before the German attack on Russia, at the direction of Hitler and Heinrich Himmler, the Reich Leader SS, and Chief of the German Police. The Einsatzgruppen Case was tried at the Palace of Justice in Nuernberg before Military Tribunal II-A. The Tribunal convened 78 times, and the trial lasted approximately eight months. The document is part of "The Green Series," a 15 volume set that focuses on the 12 American trials of almost 200 defendants, including diplomats, politicians, jurists, military leaders, leading industrialists, and physicians. The trial proceedings were carried out under the direct authority of the Allied Control Council, Law No. 10. The trials lasted two and a half years overall, and produced more than 300,000 pages of testimony and evidence.
