Denazification Questionnaire (1946)

The denazification of the German population had been a central Allied war goal. In the postwar period, one important part of these efforts was a 131-question survey used by Allied authorities to gather information on any given adult individual's level of participation in National Socialism. Surprisingly, the Nazi party registry had been saved from destruction, so it was actually possible to verify the answers. This is the first page of the famous denazification questionnaire used between 1946 and 1948.
