Dear Mr. Von Struckmann:

Thank you for submitting your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to
the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) via the *FOIAonline*
website. We received your request on May 3, 2021. Your request concerns war
crimes trial records and any Army, CIC or OSS records concerning
SS-Gruppenführer
Jakob Sporrenberg. You also requested photos.

Our office uses the *FOIAonline* portal for FOIA and Privacy Act requests
for the National Archives and Records Administration's *operational *records
(records created by this agency). Because your *FOIAOnline *request is for
records that may be textual *archival *records (records created by or
originated in a different agency but that may have been transferred to the
legal custody of NARA), we are forwarding it to two different components in
our *Office of Research Services, Textual Reference (RR2R) *and *Still
Pictures. *

Since *Research Services* does not process FOIA requests through
*FOIAOnline*, we removed your request from the *FOIAOnline* website.
Textual Reference and Still Pictures will each assign your request a new
tracking number, and respond directly to you. In the future, if you need to
follow up with these offices, please contact them at the addresses below,
or electronically via email (email is preferred).
