WASHINGTON (AP) – A never-before-published transcript of coverage of the Nuremburg trials is being donated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.
Harold Burson covered the trials in 1945 for the American Forces Network on the radio. He will deliver the transcripts to curators Tuesday, though the broadcast recordings have been lost. Burson, now 92, went on to found the public relations firm Burson-Marsteller.
Scott Miller, the museum’s chief curator, says this will be the museum’s first detailed transcript of coverage of the trials. The Nuremberg trials produced the first legal documentation and evidence of genocide by the Nazis during World War II. Miller says the transcripts will be a new resource for researchers at the museum.
Audiobook maker Audible has produced a recording with actors reading the transcripts.
