Lost Nazi Diary Found And On Display

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, Del. -

For the first time, in over half a century, we can finally take a glimpse into the disturbing mind of a Nazi leader.

Pages from "The Rosenberg Diary" were laid out by federal authorities today in Wilmington, Delaware.

Alfred Rosenberg was a close confidant of Adolph Hitler, and one of the most influential members of the Nazi party. Rosenberg was played a big role in the planning for the Nazi racial state, mass murder of the Jewish people, planning and conduct of World War II and the occupation of Soviet territory. 

He was a defendant at the Nuremberg Trials in Nuremberg, Germany, from 1945 to 1946. He was found guilty on all four counts of conspiracy to commit aggressive warfare, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Rosenberg was hanged on October 16, 1946.

Historians thought the diary was long gone, after the prosecutor from the Nuremberg Trials passed away in 1993.

Other historic documents were found in his home, but the diary was missing.

The diary, which documents the Holocaust of the Jews, surfaced again last November, after a 17-year investigation.

It will be on display at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.
