ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Carbon copies of transcripts and other mementos from the Nuremberg trials following World War II are being auctioned off in Alaska on Saturday.

The documents in the small collection belong to the estate of Maxine Carr, an Anchorage woman who worked as a stenographer at the war-crimes trials.

Carr died at least 10 years ago. The documents being auctioned off by the Anchorage-based Alaska Auction Co. were found in an old trunk in her long-vacant home.

Her Nuremberg items are being sold separately as one lot, with no minimum bidding set.

Several other private collections of mementos from that era also are being auctioned in other lots and include Nazi arm bands, German and Russian medals, Japanese grenades and a tiny Hitler propaganda booklet.
