The diary of Nazi Party ideologue Alfred Rosenberg, missing since it was used as evidence in the Nuremberg Trials (1945-46), has been found in western New York. The 400 pages in the diary were written between 1936 and 1944. The papers were found by the Allies in August 1945.

After the trial, the diary disappeared. That's when Dr. Robert Kempner, Deputy Chief Counsel and Chief Prosecutor for 11 of the 12 Nuremberg trials, caught it. Since due to his position he had access to all those tests. And furthermore, he obtained permission from the Office of the Chief of the US War Crimes Council to keep these classified documents in his possession for study, including Rosenberg's diary.

Kempner died in 1993 and in 1997 his heirs communicated to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum that they wanted to donate all that documentation. But the museum when documenting it did not find the diary.

After several years of searching, in November 2012 an art security specialist contacted authorities with new information about the newspaper. And after a court order in April 2013 they took the lost documents, that is, the newspaper. The authorities did not leak any information but the rumor says that the newspaper was taken by Kempner's secretary when he died.

A. Rosenberg was head of the Nazi Party on foreign affairs in the pre-war stage and in charge of the cultural looting by all the countries conquered during the Second World War. After the Nazis occupied part of the USSR (1941) he was appointed Minister of the Eastern Occupied Territories.

Further, Rosenberg was one of the first members of the Nazi Party and during Hitler's stay in prison he was appointed party leader. He founded the newspaper Völkischer Beobachter (propaganda newspaper of Nazi ideals).

Further, influenced the development of Nazi ideas such as the Lebensraum (Germany's need to spread throughout Europe using the population first) and the persecution and mass murder of Jewish Europeans. During his tenure as Reich Minister, deported people to forced labor camps and Jews to death camps.

Rosenberg was captured after the war (1945) and was accused of conspiracy to summon the war, war crimes, crimes against peace and against humanity. He was found guilty and hanged on October 16, 1946.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
