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.



In war crimes trials, “conspiracy”, “design”, and “plan”, are used sometimes synonymously, and sometimes not. The doctrine of conspiracy was borrowed from American state and lower Federal Court decisions, particularly Marino v. US, 91 Fed. 2d. 691, Circuit Court of Appeals. The rest of the world, of course, was not …

Background: Rudolf Höss, Commandant of Auschwitz from 1940 - 1943 was captured by the British on March 13, 1946. Affadavits written and signed in English were forced from Höss on several occasions. Although in regard to the charges of "crimes against humanity" Höss was arguably the most important prisoner, his …

In 1977, I received a newspaper clipping from a reader of my Own publication, The Military Journal. The clipping contained an interview with Paul Martin, a survivor of the so-called "Malmédy Massacre," and had apparently been published on the previous anniversary of the incident. Martin's comments are quite interesting. It …

On 14 November 1945, the proceedings of the International Military Tribunal at Nürnberg (Nuremberg) were opened.

Despite the Germanophobia that was drummed up even prior to the USA’s 1941 entry into the war against Germany, the immediate aftermath saw a significant reaction of Americans to war crimes and post-war genocidal policies that were being inflicted on Germany. Several salient factors for this include: (1) the large …

Objects of human skin feature prominently in war crimes trials. As a rule, no such objects were found; no forensic tests were performed. Prosecution testimony as to the existence of such objects is taken as "proven fact", while defence testimony is ignored. At Dachau, the prosecution claimed that Jews were …

In war crimes trials, confessions are usually typewritten by the interrogator, often entirely in English. Paragraphs in the prisoner's handwriting have usually been dictated by the interrogator. The First Dachau Trial (Trial of Martin Gottfried Weiss and Thirty Nine Others), offers an insight into the manner in which these confessions …

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.

An unusual set of circumstances, over which I had only limited control, and timing, over which I had no control whatsoever, determined the course of my military career and led me to work as a court reporter at Dachau for the 7708 War Crimes Group in Germany after my discharge …
