During the first four weeks of the Nuremberg Trial alone the British and American delegations to the prosecution submitted in evidence more than five thousand documents taken from captured enemy files and archives. These represented approximately one-tenth of a total considered relevant to the charges and sifted and scrutinised for this purpose at Nuremberg. But even that larger mass constituted only a fraction of the total haul. What this amounts to, in the British and American zones alone, we have yet to learn, but we know that it must run into at least several hundred thousand individual papers, some of them of considerable length. To these must be added, of course, the archives which fell into Soviet and French hands as well as the material seized and now held by the governments of the liberated countries.
