Text Description

Catalogue for an exhibition titled 'Hitler's Crimes' held in Paris from 10 June - 31 July 1945. Sponsored by the French government, this exhibition filled twenty-nine rooms of the Grand Palais and included exhibits on the fate met by members of the French Resistance throughout France, the internment of Jews in the French camps of Pithiviers, Beuane-la-Rolande, and Drancy and photographs from Struthof camp.

According to the catalogue, its aim "was not to spread horror, but to demonstrate the mechanism of such a deathly enterprise (...) in order to allow mankind to remain vigilant".

The foreword of the catalogue was written Lord Wright, Chairman of the United Nations War Crime Commission.
