United Nations War Criminals Files

Adopted by the CCAR at the 98th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis

WHEREAS it is unconscionable for the files of those the War Crimes Commission declared indictable to remain hidden, and

WHEREAS justice delayed is justice denied,

THEREFORE be it resolved that the Central Conference of American Rabbis calls upon the Governments of the United States and Canada to reverse their votes, in order that the Secretary-General of the United Nations be instructed to release the files for publication, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the members of the CCAR and their congregants call upon their Representatives and Senators to vote for resolutions now pending in their respective Houses calling upon the United States Government so to inform the Secretary-General, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the CCAR commend the Government and people of Australia, the lone nation voting for release of the files, for their honorable action.
