53.001 (Jackson memo to Bernays, 5 July 1945)
This document is a memo from Justice Jackson, evidently answering an inquiry from Bernays about the feasibility of prosecuting the defendants on the grounds of propounding the Nazi theory of racial superiority. Although he considers the subject appropriate for an essay, Jackson doubts its efficaciousness as part of the prosecution's case. This document is a typewritten original of very good quality on browning paper.
