#### Abstract

The PhD thesis has been prepared in terms of the history of law as a field of study and is composed of three parts. The work has been divided into three extensive chapters covering : the legal basis for the prosecution of the Nazi criminals, the functioning of the Central Commission and the history of its branch in Poznań. The Central Commission was collecting evidence necessary to formulate indictments against suspects of crimes committed during the Second World War. Most of them were used to extradite criminals caught in the former Third Reich and tried them before Polish courts. The Central Commission and its branches also conducted independent preparatory proceedings against Nazi criminals. Collecting documents, exhumation works and personal evidence sources were also obtained for scholarly and historical reasons. Part of this doctoral dissertation covers the establishment, functioning and activity of the Central Commission branch in Poznań, where very extensive exhumation and documentation works were carried out. The enormity of the tasks undertaken by the inhabitants of the capital of Greater Poland was performed by volunteers. The doctoral dissertation is the first study on the Central Commission in terms of historical and legal matters and the first one concerning the Central Commission branch in Poznań.
