Berlin Document Center at Bundesarchiv

The Berlin Document Center (BDC) was built after World War II under the authority of US-Army for use in war crimes and denazification trials. It is the largest repository of personnel and membership records of the Nazi Party (NSDAP) and its affiliated organizations.
The records of the BDC contain both biographical files and nonbiographical materials. The biographical files, which make up the bulk of the collection, contain Nazi Party membership records and personnel records of the SS, SA, and other affiliated party and state agencies. In 1996 the records of the BDC were transferred to the Bundesarchiv in Berlin-Lichterfelde. A detailed description
