Federal authorities recover missing Nazi diary
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - June 13, 2013 (WPVI) -- Federal authorities are touting the recovery of the diary writings of Alfred Rosenberg, a top Nazi party adviser to Adolf Hitler.
Homeland Security and Justice Department officials planned to join U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum representatives Thursday to discuss the recovery of some 400 handwritten pages from Rosenberg's diary, covering 1936 to 1944.
Rosenberg was executed for war crimes in 1946. His diary was among several documents kept by Robert Kempner, a U.S. government lawyer at the Nuremberg trials. The museum took possession of parts of Kempner's collection after he died in 1993, but the Rosenberg diary pages remained missing.
Acting on information received last November, authorities recently seized the missing pages after locating them in upstate New York.
