Abstract This trial brief presents the case for a Common Plan or Conspiracy in the Nazis' perpetration of war crimes and crimes against humanity against civilians. The evidence includes documentation of murder of civilian populations in occupied territories, deportations of civilian populations in occupied territories for the purposes of slave labor, killing of hostages, and the practice of collective reprisals to answer partisan and sabotage actions against the German armed forces. This document includes three appendices which respectively refer to the three sections of the greater brief, as follows: Appendix A, "Crimes Against Military Personnel / Numerical list of documents listed in Brief; Appendix B, "Wanton Destruction of Property / Numerical List of Documents"; Appendix C, "Crimes Against Civilians of or in Occupied Territories / Numerical List of Document Cited in Brief." The last two lines of page 50 have been obscured by a fold and read as follows (after the words "bodily health"): "espionage, sabotage, communistic conspiracy, offenses likely to to [sic] create disturbances, assistance to the enemy, and illicit...." The second of these lines has been handwritten in pen at the top of page 51. This document is a typewritten copy of very good to adequate quality on legal-size paper in various stages of deterioration.
