  • 1. UNITED NATIONS ARCHIVES PREDECESSOR ARCHIVES GROUPUNITED NATIONS WAR CRIMES COMMISSION 1943 - 1949 PAG-3/Rev. 1, 1987
  • 2. INTRODUCTIONHISIDRY AND ORGANIZATION The United Nations War Crimes commissio~ was established on20 October 1943 by a meeting of Government representatives of seventeenof the Allied Nations,~ including all of the major powers except theU.S.S.R.lI at the Foreign Office in London. The first official meetingwas held on 11 January 1944, and the Commission continued its workactively until the end of March 1948. The Commission engaged in formulating and implementing generalmeasures necessary to ensure the detection, apprehension, trial andpunishment of persons accused of war crimes. It also performed valuableadvisory functions in connection with the development of principles ofinternational law and planning for international tribunals. Its terms ofreference were as followsz (i) To collect, investigate and record evidence of war crimes, identifying where possible the individuals responsible. (ii) To report to the Government concerned cases where the material available appeared to disclose a prima facie case. (iii) To act as a Committee of Legal Experts charged with advising the Governments concerned upon matters of a technical nature, such as the sort of tribunals to be employed in the trial of war criminals, the law to be applied, the procedure to be adopted and the rules of evidence to be followed. ~ For a more detailed account of the organizationalstructure and the operating procedures of the UNWCC see Historyof the United Nations War Crimes Commission and the Developmentof the Laws of War, compiled by the UNWCC (London, HisMajestys Stationery Officer, 1948). ~/ Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Czechoslovakia,France, Greece, India, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand,Norway, Poland, Union of South Africa, United Kingdom, UnitedStates, Yugoslavia. South Africa was only involved in thesetting up of the Commission, subsequently, it did notparticipate in its workings. Denmark joined the Commission asa full member in July 1945. Apart from these two changes thecomposition of the Commission did not change during itslifetime. 11 The Soviet Union did not become a member, andtherefore, did not submit any charges. i
  • 3. History and organization In carrying out the function under (ii) the Commission wasassisted by National Offices established by each of the constituentmembers. Formal charges against alleged or suspected war criminals weresubmitted to the Commission by the National Offices, along with thesupporting data and a description of evidence available. It was then theresponsibility of the Commission to determine whether there appeared tobe sufficient evidence to warrant the listing of persons charged ascriminals in order that they might be detained and prosecuted by themember governments. In the performance of this function the Commissionexamined charges involving approximately 37,000 individuals. The War Crimes Commission took no part in the detention ofpersons listed, or in the prosecution of the cases. The function of the Commission under (iii) was to formulaterecommendations for the guidance of governments. Through a number ofrecommendations the Commission influenced the development ofinternational law in such questions as jurisdiction, extradition,belligerent occupation, personal responsibility for acts of State, thecriminality of aggressive war and the protection of human rights of civilpopulations against violations by their own governments. Thelaw-reporting activities of the Commission are a valuable source ofinformation on State practice regarding the repression of crimes againstpeace, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and constituted animportant preliminary step in the development and codification of thesebranches of international law. When the International Military Tribunals at Nuremberg andTokyo, as well as the municipal and occupation courts of its membergovernments, started to function and trials of war criminals wereactually being conducted on a considerable scale, the Commission madearrangements for the collection and examination of the records of thesetrials. The Commissions first Chairman was Sir Cecil Hurst of theUnited Kingdom who was followed in January 1945 by Lord Wright of Durley,Australias representative in the Commission. The post ofSecretary-General was held originally by Hugh McKinnon Wood, in November1945, Col. G.A. Ledingham succeeded him. The Commission established three main committeesl Committee I, the Committee on Facts and Evidence, was to examine the charges filed by the member governments (National Offices) and to prepare and issue lists of war criminals for the different apprehending authorities in order that they might take the necessary action. ii
  • 4. History and Organization committee II, was concerned with "Enforcement", a term which comprised all measures considered necessary to ensure the detection, apprehension, trial and punishment of persons guilty of or responsible for war crimes. The recommendations of this Committee influenced not only the creation of the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, but also the establishment of the many other international and inter-allied military tribunals including the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. In the course of time the duties of Committee II were assumed either by Committee I or Committee III. Committee III, the Legal Committee, was to advise on legal questions. Owing to the significance of many of the legal questions which were subsequently examined, the Commissions advisory function tended, in the course of time, to exceed in importance its original task of investigation. Questions of substantive law and particular charges broughtbefore the Commission by the National Offices ranged from the definitionof a war crime, superior orders, and military necessity, to usurpation ofsovereignty. In order to deal with Far Eastern problems, the Commissionadopted a proposal by the Chinese Ambassador to establish a Far Easternand Pacific Sub-Commission in Chungking (eventually moved to Nanking) asa branch of the UNWCC. It held its inaugural meeting on 29 November1944. The Sub-Commission set up two sub-committees I a Finance Committeeand a Committee on Facts and Evidence. The minutes of its meetings wereregularly transmitted to the main Commission in London. Up to March 1947it had held 38 meetings. Other committees of the main Commission were the Far EasternCommittee, the Public Relations Committee, the Finance Committee, theExecutive Committee and the Legal Publications Committee. In May 1944 the Commission established a Research Officecharged with the task of tracing some of the most notorious forms ofsystematized war crimes to their source, i.e. to compile documentaryevidence on the German authorities and departmental chiefs responsiblefor directing organisations under which war crimes were committed. Thus,in close collaboration with the National Offices, prima facie casesagainst leading German officials were often established on the basis of asingle decree or proclamation published in the German-controlled press ofan occupied territory. Another part of the Research Offices workconsisted in meeting requests for information and to arrange for thepublications of the Commission. iii
  • 5. RECORDS The records of the War Crimes Commission in the United NationsArchives consist of: minutes, documents and reports of the Commissionand its Committees, the Research Office, and the Far Eastern and PacificSub-Commission, periodical lists of War criminals, Suspects, Witnesses(including approximately 37,000 names) and related material of the mainCommission and of the Far Eastern and Pacific Sub-Commission, andcorrespondence, mainly with various National Offices. The morevoluminous part of the documentation of the War Crimes Commission arerecords submitted by Member Governments, other National Authorities andMilitary Tribunals: some 8,000 charge files and related material fromAustralia to Yugoslavia, periodical lists of about 37,000 War Criminals,Suspects and Witnesses, reports of National Military Tribunals,transcripts of proceedings and documents of the International MilitaryTribunal for the Far East. Finding Aids in the form of indexes are partof the above enumerated records. The War Crimes Commission destroyed a part of its records,mostly administrative files, which were considered to be of no historicalvalue. Most documents held by the Research Office, which had beenreceived from government departments in London, were returned to therespective ministries. Records of the following committees did not reachthe UN Archives and their whereabouts are not known. Far EasternCommittee of the Main commission, Public Relations Committee, FinanceCommittee, Executive Committee, Legal Publications Committee and twosub-committees of the Far Eastern and Pacific Sub-Commission. Even though the documents of the Commission and its Committees,per se, constitute only a small part of the total size of this archivesgroup, they provide insight into the organizational structure of theCommission and its many and varied activities. A prominent example,documented in 15 volumes, are the Law Reports of Trials of War Criminalswhich contain summaries of the trials and a comment on each case preparedby the UNWCC Secretariat. The constitutional and working relationshipbetween the War Crimes Commission and the UN Secretariat, especially inthe fields of human rights and codification and development ofinternational law, is also documented in two small registry files(RAG-l/Boxes 62 and 95). Mimeographed documents (C 201-C 226,May-September 1946) are contained in a file of the Legal Office(DAG-3/Box 18, "C.A. Stavropoulos papers"). Related to the records of the War Crimes Commission are copiesof documents and transcripts of proceedings of the International MilitaryTribunal and of twelve trials known as the "Subsequent proceedings" heldat Nuremberg from November 1946 to April 1949. These mimeographedreference materials are in the custody of the United Nations Library. iv
