Archival History

The records were created by several German occupation agencies including the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, the Zentralbauleitung der Waffen‐SS und Polizei in Auschwitz, the Gestapo, and the SS. The Red Army captured them at the end of World War II and later deposited them in the Center for the Preservation of Historical Documentary Collections (formerly the Osobyi Archive) in Moscow, Russia; in 1999, it was merged into RGVA, Russian State Military History Archives. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives selected certain files for filming during 1992 and 1993 and filming continues.

Scope and Content

Court files of investigation of people charged with state treason, sabotage, listening to foreign broadcasts, and other treasonable acts involving the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. Included are correspondence and orders regarding the investigation of Poles, Czechs, Jews, and Russians; excerpts from "highly treasonable" radio broadcasts printed in "Deutsche Volkszeitung" (October 1938) and broadcast over "German Freedom Station."
