Dallas woman buys historic Nuremberg documents

RACHEL D’ORO, Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Dallas woman has paid $9,000 for documents from the Nuremberg trials that were found in an old trunk in Alaska that belonged to a postwar stenographer.

Fran Berg was the highest bidder for the items in an auction of World War II memorabilia Saturday by Anchorage-based Alaska Auction Co.

The collection, which includes carbon copies of trial transcripts, had belonged to the late Maxine Carr, a stenographer at the war-crimes trials following the war.

Berg is a member of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide commission whose late father-in-law helped liberate Nazi victims from a concentration camp in Dachau.

She says she bought the collection as a private citizen and wants to show it to war survivors and museums.

The documents were found stored in Carr’s long-vacant Anchorage home.
