Lost Nazi Diary Found And On Display

Lost Nazi Diary Found And On Display

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, Del. -

For the first time, in over half a century, we can finally take a glimpse into the disturbing mind of a Nazi leader.

Pages from "The Rosenberg Diary" were laid out by federal authorities today in Wilmington, Delaware.

Alfred Rosenberg was a close confidant of Adolph Hitler, and one of the most influential members of the Nazi party. Rosenberg was played a big role in the planning for the Nazi racial state, mass murder of the Jewish people, planning and conduct of World War II and the occupation of Soviet territory. 

He was a defendant at the Nuremberg Trials in Nuremberg, Germany, from 1945 to 1946. He was found guilty on all four counts of conspiracy to commit aggressive warfare, crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Rosenberg was hanged on October 16, 1946.

Historians thought the diary was long gone, after the prosecutor from the Nuremberg Trials passed away in 1993.

Other historic documents were found in his home, but the diary was missing.

The diary, which documents the Holocaust of the Jews, surfaced again last November, after a 17-year investigation.

It will be on display at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
