justiz und ns-verbrechen / nazi crimes on trial

the project


The series (DDR-)Justiz und NS-Verbrechen contains the postwar German trial judgments concerning Nazi crimes of a homicidal nature, committed during World War II.*

The JuNSV-project was started in 1968 by Prof. Dr. C.F. Rüter at the Institute of Criminal Law at the Law Faculty of the University of Amsterdam. Between 1968 and 1982 the first 22 volumes were published covering the trial judgments passed by West-German courts between 1945 and 1965. In 1998 a start was made with the publication of the post-1965 judgments and from 2002 the East-German judgments were included in the project.

With the publication of volume 49 of the West German series the project is now complete. The East German series has been completed in 2010 with the publication of the index volume on the 14 volumes of trial judgments. The judgments are now also available online: www.junsv.nl

In 1999 a website carrying an overview of the post-war German NS-trials was set up, to which overviews of the American 'Dachau Trials' and the Dutch war crimes' trials were later added.

* The East German series - 'DDR-Justiz und NS-Verbrechen' - also includes the judgments regarding crimes committed during Nazi Germany's pre-war years.
