WASHINGTON – The diary of Nazi leader Alfred Rosenberg is set to go on display at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement will hand over the diary to the museum on Dec. 17 during a short ceremony. Following a 17-year search, the diary was recovered earlier this year by Immigration and Customs Enforcement from a private individual.
It had been among the original Nazi-era documents in the possession of the German-Jewish researcher and Nuremberg prosecutor Robert Kempner, who had received permission from the Office of the Chief of Counsel of War Crimes to retain an unknown number of unclassified documents “for purposes of writing, lecturing and study.”
His diary is said to include about 400 handwritten pages, all in German. The entries cover events and people from 1936 to 1944.
