Database on “The Prosecution of Nazi crimes by German Judicial Authorities since 1945”


The Leibniz Institute for Contemporary History has catalogued 51,400 legal cases in which Nazi crimes have been prosecuted in courts in both West and East Germany since 1945, as part of the project on “The prosecution of Nazi crimes by German judicial authorities since 1945”. The cases have been compiled in a database that allows users to search for particular groups of victims and culprits, crime locations, as well as complexes of crimes. This database can be used for academic purposes and can be viewed by users who must be preregistered and also submit a special application on location. Further information on access rules for this database can be found here (German).


Please note:
The database only indicates the locations of the case files!
