Soviet Extraordinary State Commission

The State Extraordinary Commission for the Determination and Investigation of Nazi and their Collaborators' Atrocities in the USSR (ChGK) was established in November 1942 to investigate the damage caused to civilians, public organizations, factories and State institutions in the USSR. In addition, the ChGK collected evidence of Nazi war crimes and evaluated damage to the economy in Soviet territories liberated from Nazi occupation.

The ChGK conducted their operations from the Central Commission in Moscow. ChGK branches in various districts and areas in the USSR collected all relevant documentation and forwarded it to the Central Commission.
