Abstract This document is a trial brief presenting the evidence against the Nazi conspirators for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against peace in connection with their establishment of some 400 concentration camps in Germany proper and in the occupied territories of the Greater German Reich. The brief argues that the concentration camps were an essential component in the conspirators' overall plan of wielding totalitarian control within Germany and across the European continent; by imprisoning and executing their political opponents, the Nazis intended to terrorize all potential opposition, both foreign and domestic, into permanent subjugation. This document is a typewritten copy ranging in quality from excellent to poor. The paper is extremely brown and brittle.
