Among the records that helped to convict 22 high-ranking Nazi officials in what was then called "the biggest murder trial in history" was a report by the commander of Einsatzgruppe A, which perpetrated mass shooting operations in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Belarus. On this day 79 years ago, SS-Brigadier General Walther Stahlecker reported to the Reich Security Main Office in Berlin that men under his command had murdered at least 118,000 unarmed Jewish men, women, and children in less than four months.
I have not seen any thread on this report, only the infamous "Coffin map" which is attached to the second Stahlecker report:
Ostland and the "Stahlecker map"
The USHMM post is referencing the first Stahlecker report, which is entitled "Overall report up to 15 October 1941" ("Gesamtbericht bis zum 15. Oktober 1941"). The complete report is 221 pages long. It is located in the Russian archives (GARF 500-4-93) and also published as L-180 in IMT, Vol. 37, pp. 670-717, and NCA, Vol. VII, pp. 978-996
Here is the PDF for the IMT transcript, starting on page 670: https://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/Military_Law ... XXXVII.pdf
I am trying to get a copy of this document in English translation; in the meantime does anyone have comments about it?
