British Online Archives – an online gateway to over 80 primary source collections dedicated to teaching and research within the Humanities and Social Sciences – are delighted to announce the pending release of its latest collection, Prosecuting the Holocaust: British investigations into Nazi war crimes, 1944-1949.
Drawn from the UK National Archives, this collection contains a wealth of information regarding the British government’s efforts to investigate and prosecute Nazi crimes during the period 1944-1949. The evidence gathered sheds light on almost every aspect of the Holocaust, from the concentration camp system to the mass murder of the “incurably sick” in psychiatric hospitals. More importantly, it gives a voice to the victims of these atrocities, many of whom testified about their experiences immediately after the war.
The collection will be available for institutional trial from Monday 1st April and further information about the resource can be found here.
