Released by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Interagency Working Group (IWG), this interim report reveals the status of the Group's progress in the long and complex process of identifying, declassifying, and releasing US Government records relating to Nazi war crimes. Among other things, the report reveals that the IWG has identified more than 600 million pages in 127 file categories to be further searched for responsive documents, especially those held by the CIA, FBI, Department of Defense, and the NARA. While the statutory deadline for declassification and release is October 2001, the IWG plans to declassify an additional 176,000 pages in the fall of 1999, bringing the total to 300,000 available for public examination at the National Archives in College Park. The full text of the report is available as a single-page HTML document. Users can browse the list of declassified records as well as access related research papers, terms and timelines, and finding aids, at the IWG main site. The site also provides updates, minutes of meetings, a bibliography, and related links.
