Tokyo War Crimes

2011

The Tokyo War Crimes collection is one of the most complete and unique sets of original documents of the post World War 2 International Military Tribunal Far East (IMTFE) 1946-1948.

It has enormous significance for the Asia Pacific region and rivals in significance to the Nuremberg collection held by Harvard Law School. It was presented to the University of Canterbury in 1949 by Justice Erima Harvey Northcroft, the New Zealand Member of the IMTFE. .

This collection was also registered in 2010 by the Memory of the World Committee for Asia and the Pacific.
