English: Photographs from Jürgen Stroop Report to Heinrich Himmler from May 1943 about Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

The Stroop Report had three parts: an introduction and summary of SS operations, a collection of daily communiques, and a series of photographs. According to Stroop, three leather bound albums were created for Himmler, Krueger and Stroop, and one unbound file copy of the report (das Konzept) remained in the headquarters of the SS and Police Leader in Warsaw, in the care of Chief of Staff Jesuiter.[1] Only two of the four copies were discovered, and exhibited at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg in November 1945, sharing the document number 1061-PS, and used in the trial as “US Exhibit 275”. According to the “Staff Evidence Analysis” prepared by the Office of the U.S. Chief of Counsel (OCC), the sources of these originals were listed as the Seventh Army Intelligence Center (SAIC) for the one, and the Military Intelligence Research Section (MIRS) in London for the other. One of these specimens, the one supplied by SAIC, was a leather-bound original. After Nuremberg Trial, it was sent in 1948 to Warsaw, where it remains the Polish Institute of National Remembrance. The MIRS specimen is unbound, and is presumably the file copy which was kept at SS headquarters in Warsaw, and which now resides at the National Archives (NARA) in Washington, D.C. In that copy, Stroop’s signature is missing from the final page of the introduction and none of the 32 dispatches is signed by Stroop nor counter-signed by his chief of staff, Jesuiter, as they are in Warsaw copy.[1]

Each image below is followed by image number in Warsaw and NARA copies of the document, and original German caption and it's translations.

Français : Le rapport Stroop est en 3 parties : une introduction et un résumé des opérations SS, le recueil des communiqués quotidiens et une série de photographies. Ces albums ont été réalisés à l'intention de Himmler, Krueger et Stroop et furent retrouvés après la guerre. L'un d'entre eux servit de preuve au procès de Nuremberg puis fut plus tard publié. Ces albums, légèrement différents par les textes et les photos sont conservés aujourd'hui en Pologne, à l'Institut National du Souvenir de Varsovie, dans les Archives nationales américaines à Washington et dans les Archives fédérales allemandes. Le numéro des photos ci-dessous correspond à la version conservée en Pologne.
