There are numerous entries in the Onlne Public Catalog, but your specific search may be defined on an SF135 or 258
Record of Transmittal and Receipt Form, which lists documents sent and received by NARA. Many of the specific searches and topics may not be searchable in the NARA online catalog. Some of the SF135's contain numerous pages and may have to be reviewed. Those types of records could also be included in another reference. Hopefully there are some subject matter experts who are familiar with the location of the records? You could also request the SF135's and review the document item numbers and descriptions?

Dear Mr. Teper,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub.
The records you are interested in are most likely part of the National Archives Collection of World War II War Crimes Records (Record Group 238). An overview of records that contain information related to the “I.G. Farben Case” (case 6, prepared by trial team no. 1) can be found at that link in section 238.4.6 Records of Divisions in Charge of Trial Preparation and Presentation and in section 238.5.3 Official Records of the Trials before U.S. Military Tribunals.
A search of the National Archives Catalog offers several specific series from RG 238 which may be helpful to you, including the series:
- United States Exhibits, 1945-1946
- List of Nuremberg War Crimes Documents Pertaining to Concentration Camps
- Records Relating Primarily to Concentration Camps and to Schutzstaffel (SS) Military Units, 1947-1949
- Lists of Schutzstaffel (SS) Related Documents Used in Preparation for Subsequent Nuremberg Trials, 1946-1948
- Nuernberg Organization (NO) Documents, 1947-1949
You might also find some useful information in the National Archives’ Records of the U.S. High Commissioner for Germany [USHCG] (RG 466). The series Security-Classified Records Relating to I.G. Farben, 1945-1954, for example, “consists of translations of German documents from the Nuremberg trial of I. G. Farben and includes interrogations of its high ranking employees.”
Finally, you may also want to review the series Nuremberg Transcripts, 1945-1947, which is part of Records of Allied Operational and Occupation Headquarters, World War II (RG 331).
Thank you, again, for sharing your question with the History Hub, and best of luck with your search.
