A Nazi diary is now in the possession of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The Rosenberg Diary, written by someone close to Adolf Hitler, had been missing for decades but now is available online to those curious to read through it. Yahoo! News shared the details on Dec. 17.

Alfred Rosenberg kept the Nazi diary and it is 425 pages long. The diary is of interest to many who try to wrap their minds around the strategies and actions of Adolf Hitler. The Nazi diary had been missing since 1946 when the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials ended.

The Nazi diary is available online at the museum's website. There is a chunk missing, however, and it is said the diary doesn't contain any shocking revelations. The diary was missing until about a year ago, when Homeland Security special agents and the US Attorney's office in Delaware got a tip about its location.

Robert Kempner, a Nuremberg prosecutor, had apparently taken the Nazi diary after the trial. He died in 1993, and it seems from there one of Kempner's assistants took the diary and passed it along to academic publisher Herbert Warren Richardson. Many feel that getting the Nazi diary into the museum is the right move. Hard copies of the Nazi diary should be available beginning in 2014.
