UNITED NATIONS WAR CRIMES COMMISSION

1943 - 1949

PAG-3/Rev. 1, 1987

INTRODUCTION

HIS'IDRY AND ORGANIZATION

The United Nations War Crimes commissio~ was established on


20 October 1943 by a meeting of Government representatives of seventeen
of the Allied Nations,~ including all of the major powers except the
U.S.S.R.lI at the Foreign Office in London. The first official meeting
was held on 11 January 1944, and the Commission continued its work
actively until the end of March 1948.
The Commission engaged in formulating and implementing general
measures necessary to ensure the detection, apprehension, trial and
punishment of persons accused of war crimes.
It also performed valuable
advisory functions in connection with the development of principles of
international law and planning for international tribunals.
Its terms of
reference were as followsz
(i)

(ii)

(iii)

To collect, investigate and record evidence of


war crimes, identifying where possible the
individuals responsible.
To report to the Government concerned cases
where the material available appeared to
disclose a prima facie case.
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 organizational


structure and the operating procedures of the UNWCC see History
of the United Nations War Crimes Commission and the Development
of the Laws of War, compiled by the UNWCC (London, His
Majesty's Stationery Officer, 1948).
~/ Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Czechoslovakia,
France, Greece, India, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand,
Norway, Poland, Union of South Africa, United Kingdom, United
States, Yugoslavia.
South Africa was only involved in the
setting up of the Commission, subsequently, it did not
participate in its workings. Denmark joined the Commission as
a full member in July 1945. Apart from these two changes the
composition of the Commission did not change during its
lifetime.
11 The Soviet Union did not become a member, and
therefore, did not submit any charges.

History and organization

In carrying out the function under (ii) the Commission was


assisted by National Offices established by each of the constituent
members. Formal charges against alleged or suspected war criminals were
submitted to the Commission by the National Offices, along with the
supporting data and a description of evidence available.
It was then the
responsibility of the Commission to determine whether there appeared to
be sufficient evidence to warrant the listing of persons charged as
criminals in order that they might be detained and prosecuted by the
member governments.
In the performance of this function the Commission
examined charges involving approximately 37,000 individuals.
The War Crimes Commission took no part in the detention of
persons listed, or in the prosecution of the cases.
The function of the Commission under (iii) was to formulate
recommendations for the guidance of governments. Through a number of
recommendations the Commission influenced the development of
international law in such questions as jurisdiction, extradition,
belligerent occupation, personal responsibility for acts of State, the
criminality of aggressive war and the protection of human rights of civil
populations against violations by their own governments. The
law-reporting activities of the Commission are a valuable source of
information on State practice regarding the repression of crimes against
peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and constituted an
important preliminary step in the development and codification of these
branches of international law.
When the International Military Tribunals at Nuremberg and
Tokyo, as well as the municipal and occupation courts of its member
governments, started to function and trials of war criminals were
actually being conducted on a considerable scale, the Commission made
arrangements for the collection and examination of the records of these
trials.
The Commission's first Chairman was Sir Cecil Hurst of the
United Kingdom who was followed in January 1945 by Lord Wright of Durley,
Australia's representative in the Commission. The post of
Secretary-General was held originally by Hugh McKinnon Wood, in November
1945, 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

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
Commission's advisory function tended, in the course of time,
to exceed in importance its original task of investigation.
Questions of substantive law and particular charges brought
before the Commission by the National Offices ranged from the definition
of a war crime, superior orders, and military necessity, to usurpation of
sovereignty.
In order to deal with Far Eastern problems, the Commission
adopted a proposal by the Chinese Ambassador to establish a Far Eastern
and Pacific Sub-Commission in Chungking (eventually moved to Nanking) as
a branch of the UNWCC.
It held its inaugural meeting on 29 November
1944. The Sub-Commission set up two sub-committees I
a Finance Committee
and a Committee on Facts and Evidence.
The minutes of its meetings were
regularly transmitted to the main Commission in London. Up to March 1947
it had held 38 meetings.
Other committees of the main Commission were the Far Eastern
Committee, the Public Relations Committee, the Finance Committee, the
Executive Committee and the Legal Publications Committee.
In May 1944 the Commission established a Research Office
charged with the task of tracing some of the most notorious forms of
systematized war crimes to their source, i.e. to compile documentary
evidence on the German authorities and departmental chiefs responsible
for directing organisations under which war crimes were committed.
Thus,
in close collaboration with the National Offices, prima facie cases
against leading German officials were often established on the basis of a
single decree or proclamation published in the German-controlled press of
an occupied territory. Another part of the Research Office's work
consisted in meeting requests for information and to arrange for the
publications of the Commission.

iii

RECORDS

The records of the War Crimes Commission in the United Nations


Archives consist of: minutes, documents and reports of the Commission
and its Committees, the Research Office, and the Far Eastern and Pacific
Sub-Commission, periodical lists of War criminals, Suspects, Witnesses
(including approximately 37,000 names) and related material of the main
Commission and of the Far Eastern and Pacific Sub-Commission, and
correspondence, mainly with various National Offices. The more
voluminous part of the documentation of the War Crimes Commission are
records submitted by Member Governments, other National Authorities and
Military Tribunals: some 8,000 charge files and related material from
Australia 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 Military
Tribunal for the Far East. Finding Aids in the form of indexes are part
of the above enumerated records.
The War Crimes Commission destroyed a part of its records,
mostly administrative files, which were considered to be of no historical
value. Most documents held by the Research Office, which had been
received from government departments in London, were returned to the
respective ministries. Records of the following committees did not reach
the UN Archives and their whereabouts are not known.
Far Eastern
Committee of the Main commission, Public Relations Committee, Finance
Committee, Executive Committee, Legal Publications Committee and two
sub-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 archives
group, they provide insight into the organizational structure of the
Commission and its many and varied activities. A prominent example,
documented in 15 volumes, are the Law Reports of Trials of War Criminals
which contain summaries of the trials and a comment on each case prepared
by the UNWCC Secretariat.
The constitutional and working relationship
between the War Crimes Commission and the UN Secretariat, especially in
the fields of human rights and codification and development of
international 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 copies
of documents and transcripts of proceedings of the International Military
Tribunal and of twelve trials known as the "Subsequent proceedings" held
at Nuremberg from November 1946 to April 1949. These mimeographed
reference materials are in the custody of the United Nations Library.

iv

requests for medical examination of defendants, motions on the
jurisdiction of the IMTFE, requests of the defendants for
