Generous funding from Taube Philanthropies to support exciting expansion of WWII digital archival collaboration with Stanford University Libraries
The Center for Human Rights and International Justice is pleased to share some exciting recent developments and a groundbreaking new chapter of collaboration with the Stanford University Libraries (SUL) as part of the Virtual Tribunals Initiative. SUL was recently authorized by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague to manage long-term digital preservation and online hosting with significant scholarly functions for records of the war crimes trial conducted at Nuremberg in 1945 and 1946. These archives were entrusted to the ICJ by a decision of the Tribunal in 1946. Our Center will work in partnership with SUL to develop this collection to provide a unique multimedia research and educational resource for scholars, students, the public, and posterity. Vital and generous support from Tad Taube and the Taube Philanthropies to Stanford will provide funds for the hosting program and establish an endowment to ensure the archive is maintained and remains secure in the Stanford Digital Archive, where it will be known as the Taube Archive of the International Military Tribunal of Nuremberg.
