War Crime Trials + Prosecutions

“I thought at the time and still think that the Nuremberg trials were unprincipled. Law was created ex post facto to suit the passion and clamor of the time. The concept of ex post facto law is not congenial to the Anglo-American viewpoint on law. Before criminal penalties can be imposed there must be fair warning that the conduct which one undertook was criminal.”—William O. Douglas, LL.D. (Associate Justice, Supreme Court of the U.S., 1939-1975)

We used to have these trials listed under postwar crimes, but since most visitors don't expect them there, hence had a hard time finding it, we moved it up one notch.

Dokumente zur Endlösung der Judenfrage

Seit Politik und Kriegführung vom “Feldherrn Psychologus” beherrscht werden und alle strategischen Zielsetzungen sich an die Erfordernisse des psychologischen Krieges anpassen mußten, ist auch für die Geschichtsforschung eine veränderte Lage entstanden, in der die herkömmlichen Mittel zur Erforschung eines historischen Sachverhaltes nicht mehr ausreichen und neue angemessene Forschungsweisen entwickelt werden müssen.

Ernst Kaltenbrunner: Framed at Nuremberg

Ernst Kaltenbrunner was chief of the Reich Main Office for Security (RSHA) from January 1943 until the end of World War II. In this position, he directed the operations of the Secret State Police (Gestapo), the Criminal Police (Kripo), and the Security Service (SD). Of the German leaders who stood before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in 1945, few inspired more revulsion and contempt than Kaltenbrunner. This article examines the life of Kaltenbrunner, and whether or not the accusations made against him at the IMT are true.

Ernst von Weizsäcker:  Last Victim of Germany’s Vengeful Conquerors

German State Secretary Ernst von Weizsäcker worked tirelessly for peace and had never wanted Germany to enter into World War II. Weizsäcker fell out of favor with Adolf Hitler toward the end of the war, and might have been executed if he had not been in Allied-occupied Rome. Treacherously, he was charged and convicted as a war criminal by the Allies after the war.

The Mauthausen Trial: A Disgrace to American Justice
