Though the agency began as an Army activity, it became an Army and Navy enterprise in January 1945, under the control of the Judge Advocate General's Office. It represented the United States in the collection and preparation of evidence for the trials of suspected war criminals. (Note 21)

Safehaven Reports 1944-45 (Entry 134) (Note 25)

The records reproduced in this microfilm publication consist primarily of Safehaven reports and letters, cables, and military attaché reports referring to specific Safehaven reports or Safehaven-related topics. Such topics include information on alleged art looting; business matters (including alleged patent transfers) pertaining to leading German industrial firms such as Bosch and I.G. Farben; and various Third Reich person-alities. Although several small strips of microfilm are included in the series, the contents of these microfilm strips have been printed (provided in textual format) and interfiled in the appropriate places throughout the series. This series is arranged chronologically by date of cover letter or report, as appropriate, and, where possible, thereunder by report number. When Safehaven reports were received as attachments or enclosures to other documents, the date of the covering document was used to arrange the records. These date discrepancies are reconciled in the appendix available for viewing in the research consultation room.

This series is available on NARA Microfilm Publication M1933, Rolls 1–9.
