Abstract This document is a trial brief of the case against Fritz Sauckel and Albert Speer for Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes on the basis of the Nazi conspirators' criminal plan of deporting citizens of occupied territories to Germany to perform, under brutal arid debilitating conditions, slave labor intended to augment the German war effort, particularly the armaments industry. The brief relies primarily on documentary evidence: captured German documents, such as letters, memos, reports, and official decrees; interrogations of the defendants; and affidavits from witnesses. This document is a typewritten copy of adequate to poor quality on legal-size paper in various stages of deterioration.
