This document records the minutes of the titular meeting, the substance of which concerned the creation of an Information Center for defense counsel. As indicated here, the Center is to be staffed on a rotating basis by a German-speaking officer from each of the Four Allied Powers, and to contain certain documents that will be entered into evidence, as well as "certain sets of decrees, laws, etc., such as are contained in the Reichsgesetzblatt" (p.1). The necessity of translating all documents into German before they are introduced at trial is particularly noted. The present document is a typewritten carbon copy of excellent quality on thin, slightly browning paper.
