(p.457) 26 Problems Concerning the Treatment of War Criminals
Secret Reports on Nazi Germany

Franz Neumann

Princeton University Press

This chapter discusses problems concerning the treatment of war criminals. The report explains that the United Nations have announced as one of their major war aims the prosecution and punishment of war criminals. The Moscow “Statement on Atrocities,” following upon numerous official utterances of Allied leaders, has outlined certain procedures. The chapter considers additional steps that are deemed necessary to enable the Allied powers to implement the Moscow Statement and to coordinate their policy on war crimes and war criminals. For example, it is necessary to determine which of the manifold Axis policies and activities should be singled out as “war crimes.” Another issue that needs to be addressed concerns the arrest, detention, and extradition of war criminals.

Keywords:   war criminals, United Nations, Statement on Atrocities, war crimes, arrest, detention, extradition
