The book Unsung Heroes of the Dachau Trials deals with the young Americans who were responsible for gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, apprehending suspects and securing convictions in trials held at Dachau conducted by the U.S. Army after WWII. This article discusses some of the mistakes and misunderstandings made by the author and the members of the 7708 War Crimes Group interviewed in this book.
Individual Allied Trials in Germany
Already before the IMT, the allied nations staged various show trials in Germany to “establish facts” which were later used during the IMT to cement the claimed “truth” about German war crimes. These trials also continued during and after the IMT. (Not included here are the U.S.-conducted NMTs; see the previous entry for this.) Contributions in the present section deal with those individual trials, such as, for instance, the infamous U.S.-conducted Dachau trials, the Belsen trial, the trial against Bruno Tesch et al., etc.
Ernst Zundel talks about the German Holocaust on the German people. The real Holocaust wasn't against the Jews it was against the Germans.....after the war.
War produces grotesque and horrifying abuses of man by man. Everywhere and always.
They can be proven by judicial proceedings, but never as to all who are guilty of them.
Especially the victors.
Did the US occupational forces conducting war-crimes trials in Germany after World War II employ second- and third-degree interrogation methods and other illegal measure to obtain the convictions they wanted? A new book by a mainstream historian disputes this, claiming instead that those trials were paragons of fairness and justice. This denial of the obvious could hardly be more brazen.
