The National Archives and Records Administration of the United States and Footnote.com yesterday announced the release of the Internet’s largest Interactive Holocaust Collection with hundreds of thousands of records, including:
- The Ardelia Hall Collection of records relating to the Nazi looting of Jewish possessions, including looted art
- Concentration camp registers and documents from Dachau, Mauthausen, Auschwitz, and Flossenburg
- Captured German records including deportation and death lists from concentration camps
- Nuremberg War Crimes Trial proceedings
Access to the collection will be available for free on Footnote.com through the month of October.
On the matter of looted art, there are a number of good research guides out there. One of the best was published by LLRX.com in 2007: Legal Protection of Cultural Property: A Selective Resource Guide.
On the Nuremberg trials, a number of sources have extensive collections of material, including the Avalon Project at Yale Law School, and the Nuremberg Trials Project at the Harvard Law School Library.
