Abstract The two court sessions of 22 November 1945 transcribed in this document were devoted to preparing the groundwork for the case against the major Nazi defendants for engaging in a conspiracy that involved crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes against the peace. As such, these transcripts address the hierarchical structure of the Nazi Party and the nature and scope of its activities within Germany prior to the outbreak of the Second World War, including its seizure and consolidation of power, its destruction of German labor unions, persecution of Christian churches and clergy, and its murderous persecution of Jews. This document is a typewritten copy. Pages 4-15 of the morning session are fragile and browning. The balance of the first 33 pages is in generally good condition. Of the afternoon session, pages 1-4, 7-10, 17-19, and 22-38 are in generally good condition; pages 5-6, 11-16, and 20-21 are fragile and browning.
