      Seeking names of American citizens (native born or naturalized) who collaborated with the Axis in World War II Europe (not the on-air radio broadcasters/propagandist).

          Dear Mr. Harding,

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We suggest that you review the National Archives Nazi War Crimes Interagency Working Group website.

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Security Classified Class 146-1 (Communism) Litigation Case Files, 1940 - 1976 in the General Records of the Department of Justice (Record Group 60) that may include information concerning American citizens who collaborated with the Axis in World War II. These records are security classified. Please follow these instructions to request that they be declassified under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Following completion of a review by the National Archives at College Park - Special Access/FOIA Staff (RD-F), they will advise you whether any or all of the files have been declassified. Next, we located the War Crimes List, 1945-1950 in the Records of the Office of the Judge Advocate General (Army) (Record Group 153) that includes information on the Central Registry of War Criminals and Security Suspects. These records have not been digitized. For more information about these and similar records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at archives2reference@nara.gov.
