Alfred Rosenberg’s long-lost diary has been found at a private company in upstate New York. Rosenberg is one of Adolf Hitler’s closest confidants who played a huge role in the slaughter of millions of Jews and other nan-Aryans.
The diary, which consists of about 400 loose, handwritten pages, was said to have been smuggled into the US after the war. Officials suggest that it might be Robert M.W Kempner, a government lawyer during the Nuremberg trials, who smuggled the diary.
"One of the enduring mysteries of the Second World War is what happened to the Rosenberg diary," said John Morton, director of U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement said on Thursday.
"We have solved that mystery."
Gerhard Weinberg, professor emeritus of history at the University of North Carolina and a leading historian on the Nazi era, said that the diary may offer interesting information on conversation with other important figures in the government.
He added: "It is also possible that we will all be disappointed. There may turn out to be very little that we don't know."
