A report by SS Brigadefuhrer Jurgen Stroop was dealing with the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto. Stroop was sent to Warsaw to remove the 56.000 surviving Jews from the ghetto, and he recorded his deeds - daily killings with cold-blooded brutality - in a boastful seventy-five-page report bound together in black pebble leather and including copies of all daily communiqués sent to his superior officer as well af photos with captions in Gothic script.

After World War 2 Stroop surrendered to the Allies and claimed he was just following orders. The Stroop report was used by the Allies at the Nuremberg Trials to show how deliberate was his killing of every Jew in the ghetto.

Jurgen Stroop was turned over to the Poles, and was hanged on the site of the Ghetto in 1951.
