This document is an R&A report compiled to the end of "[indicating] the channels of responsibility for war crimes, insofar as they were expressions of Nazi legislation, rather than to present the case for criminal responsibility in any specific instances" (p.1). The report includes "A brief outline of the major legislative bodies and authorities, such as the Reich Cabinet and the Ministerial Defense Council, and their main functions and responsibilities," and "A list of documents dealing with the structure and organization, as well as the functions, of the remaining (mainly executive) governmental agencies and authorities," (p.1); this list appears as an annotated Appendix at the end of the report. The document itself is a typewritten copy of good to excellent quality on lightly browning paper in good condition.
