Helmut Friedrichs, Deputy head of the Reichs Chancellory ;established himself in Duesseldorf, where it worked starting from 1953 as independent architect and author and died in the year 1987. He served a few years in prison.

Willem Sassen (born April 16, 1918 in Geertruidenberg, † 2001 in Chile) was a Dutch National Socialist and SS. He was in the late 1950s known as an interviewer of Adolf Eichmann, one of the most responsible for the genocide known as the Holocaust of approximately six million European Jews.

Journalist Willem Sassen volunteered for the fascist ‘Dutch Legion’, the men were placed under the command of Dutch officers in the Waffen-SS in separate units. He was a war correspondent in SS Panzer troops, after being wounded, he joined the radio station “Voice of the SS” in Belgium and the Netherlands. In October 1944, Sassen Editor in Chief of the newspaper De Telegraaf (De Courant Nieuws van de Dag) was. He was promoted to SS lieutenant.

After the war he was interned, was able to escape, went to Antwerp and obtained the papers of Albert Desmedt from a fallen victim to the destruction of family. When his disguise as a “surviving Jew” noticed he was deported to the Netherlands, was able to flee again. His old friend Anthony Mertens (editor of the weekly paper De line) gave him contact with the “Catholics-round” clerical fanatical Nazis. From this circle, he received new false documents with which he was able to embark in September 1948, Dublin to Argentina on the so-called rat line.

In the 1970s, Sassen married for the third time, and although Els Delbaere, he worked as a PR consultant for the Chilean dictator Pinochet and the dictator of Paraguay Alfredo Stroessner.

In Argentina – vanishing point of many former Nazis – he quickly found access, and met Adolf Eichmann, with whom he discussed a book project about the activities of the RSHA. In this context, it was over four years to the two regular meetings, usually twice a month, so for about 40 to 50 calls. Sassen kept both tapes and transcripts of these discussions, as corrected transcripts of Eichmann. After the kidnapping of Eichmann to Israel succeeded Sassen, make the material into money through part-impressions in the magazines Time / Life (USA) and Stern (Germany). Sassen 1980 gave the tapes and transcripts of Eichmann’s widow, Vera.

Kurt Becher
d. 1995, free. Definitely a war criminal, but may not have been investigated due to his relation to the ‘Jews for trucks’ deal of Himmler’s.

Bosshammer, Friedrich
On 10 January 1968 Friedrich Bosshammer arrested for “suspicion of complicity in the murder of at least 150,000 Jews and was in custody and a new trial because of his activities in northern Italy was linked to it. The trial before the district court of Berlin began on 16 November 1971 and limited to the facts, since to have jointly murdered an unknown number of Italian Jews, at least 3336 people.

Throughout the trial the accused had neither Unrrechtsbewusstsein nor remorse or shame see [2]. He presented himself as a powerless tool in overwhelming command structures, with no knowledge of the murders and not have their own motives or even hatred. The prosecution showed, however, that Bosshammer was an ambitious offenders with decision-making and freedom of action. On 11 April 1972 Bosshammer sentenced to life imprisonment. The verdict was not final because he died at the end of that year.
d. 1972

Helmut Knochen, d. 2003

From 1963 he lived in Offenbach am Main. Helmut Knochen worked as an insurance agent and married 1982 a second time, Knochen was a member [3] In 1968 he was indicted for perjury because he was before the district court Offenburg had testified that he knew about the murder of the Jews anything. [4] Knochen was then a different approach and shot amnesia, because he “had displaced painful events” that [5], in the trial of Modest Graf von Korff [ 6], detachments of Chalons-sur-Marne, in 1987, he eventually became a “unreachable evidence” that could indeed play four hours a day of golf, but for health reasons as a witness could not be summoned. [7] Here too as the question of whether the commanders of the Gestapo were aware that the deportees were gassed in Auschwitz. Even Councilor Korff was acquitted for lack of evidence.

Engel, Friedrich
In June 2004 the Federal Court lifted the verdict against the now 95-year-old Friedrich Engel on the revision on out, because the killing feature of the cruelty was not proven sufficient. At the same time presented the 5th Senate proceedings, a criminal, because the great age of Engel and the long time since the actual crime would not allow a renewed process [2].

Engel died in February 2006 in Hamburg, a month after his 97th Birthday.

**Otto Winkelmann
(born September 4, 1894 in Bordesholm; † September 24, 1977, ibid [1]) was a general in the SS, the 1944 Higher SS and Police Leader (HSSPF) in Hungary participated in the Holocaust of Hungarian Jews. As general of the Waffen SS, he was briefly commandant of Budapest at the approach of the Red Army. After the war he was imprisoned in Hungary for three years as a witness at the Nazi trials. After his return to Germany, no proceedings were opened against him.

In the spring of 1940, Winkelmann was promoted to SS-colonel and colonel in the police, in December 1940, appointed head of the local group I command in the main office of the Order Police. This Daluege was his immediate superior. In December 1941, Winkelmann reached as major general of police for the first rank of general in August 1942 he was further promoted to lieutenant general of police. (more on Winkelmann’s crimes in Hungary below in the comments section.)

So he served 3 years time, and no time in Germany, for planning the Holocaust. May have given witness in capture of Eichmann
Lithuanian who served with Nazis may be deported from US

German Adjutant who burned Hitler’s personal papers:

Julius Schaub (August 20, 1898 – December 27, 1967) was the chief aide and adjutant [1] of German dictator Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II.

He was identified as “Hitler’s personal Adjutant” in the 1934 film, Triumph of the Will. In the aftermath of the July 20 Plot to kill Hitler in 1944, Hitler had a badge struck to honor all those injured or killed in the blast. Hitler’s aides later said that Schaub, who was in a building some distance from the explosion, falsely tried to claim he was injured so as to be able to wear the badge.

At the end of the war, April 23, 1945, Hitler ordered Schaub to burn all his personal belongings and papers from the Reichskanzlei and the Fuehrerbunker in the garden of the Reichskanzlei. Schaub then flew to Munich and did the same in Hitlers private apartment at Prinzregentenplatz and at the Berghof in Obersalzberg. Finally he went to Zell am See and Mallnitz and destroyed Hitler’s personal Train, the “Fuehrerzug”. Possessing false ID papers on the name “Josef Huber”, he was arrested on May 8, 1945 in Kitzbuehl by American troops (36th CIC Det.) and in custody until February 17, 1949. Since both U.S. military and German denazification authorities didn’t see any participation in war crimes in the period of 1933-1945, Schaub was classified by the denazification only as a “fellow traveler.” An indictment for war crimes did not come accordingly. “His final rank, from 1944, was as an SS-Obergruppenführer. Schaub died in Munich in 1967.

He wasn’t a war criminal, in the narrow sense, yet a criminal still. Now we’ll never know what Hitler wrote down about the Holocaust.

IG Farben:

Dr. Helmut Vetter
(excutd) SS major Dr Helmuth Vetter, stationed at Auschwitz, participated in human medical experiments by order of Bayer

Dr. Ter Meer’s own visits to Auschwitz and the detailed reports he received made it inconceivable that he did not have a clear picture of what was occurring.

Friedrich (Fritz) Ter Meer, d. 1967
After the repeal of the recording block in May 1937, he joined the Nazi party at. [5] On 7 September 1939 he and Henry Hörlein agreed with the Army Ordnance Department to produce the nerve agent tabun. During construction of the appropriate poison gas factory in Dyhernfurth than 100 prisoners of war were used. [6] In September 1943 he was General Manager for Italy of the Reich Minister for armaments and war production [7].

During World War II, he was responsible for the development of the IG Farben plant at Auschwitz, in which the substance testing human experiments took place [8] and about 25,000 forced laborers under horrible circumstances were killed. In 1943 he received the Knight’s Cross of War Merit Cross.

In the I.G. Farben Trial at Nuremberg, the judges reach the following decision with regard to the charge of “enslavement and mass murder”: “The inference is strong that Farben officials subordinate to Ter Meer took the initiative in securing the services of these inmates at the plant site. This inference is further supported by the fact that Farben at its own expense and with funds appropriated by the TEA [Technical Committee], of which Ter Meer was chairman, built Camp Monowitz for the specific purpose of housing its concentration-camp workers. We are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the officials in charge of Farben construction went beyond the necessity created by the pressure of government officials and may be justly charged with taking the initiative in planning for and availing themselves of the use of concentration-camp labor. Of these officials Ter Meer had greatest authority.”
(Das Urteil im I.G.-Farben-Prozess. Der vollständige Wortlaut (Offenbach am Main: Bollwerk, 1948), p. 135. (Transl. KL))

Fritz ter Meer also worked for Bayer and later IG Farben. He was involved in the planning of Monowitz concentration camp, a satellite camp of KZ Auschwitz. He was sentenced to seven years prison by the Nuremberg Trials in 1948. After he was released in 1951 he became supervisory board chairman (Aufsichtsratsvorsitzender) of the Bayer AG. He retired in 1961.

During World War II, he was responsible for the development of the IG Farben plant at Auschwitz, in which the substance testing human experiments took place [8] and about 25,000 forced laborers under horrible circumstances were killed. In 1943 he received the Knight’s Cross of War Merit Cross.

Post-war period
After his arrest in April 1945 [4] he was in the IG Farben Trial 30 July 1948 because of looting and enslavement related to the concentration camp Auschwitz III Monowitz convicted as war criminals to seven years in prison. When he was questioned in the process, if he had kept the tests on humans in Auschwitz to be justified, he replied that this was irrelevant:

“The detainees by any particular harm was inflicted, as they would in any case killed.” [9]

He was in the summer of 1950 prematurely because of “good behavior” released from custody in prison for war criminals Landsberg [10] and was immediately after the abolition of war crimes threshold of the Allied Law No. 35 of 1956 [11] Supervisory Board Chairman of Bayer AG. In subsequent years he also took on board positions at a number of other companies, including, inter alia, Theodor Goldschmidt AG, Commerzbank AG Bank Corporation, Duewag, VIAG and bank association West Germany AG. His achievements in the reconstruction of the chemical industry in Germany to be significant.

Fritz ter Meer was devoted to the postwar years, even with private funds, the construction of foundations, the social objectives served.

His memory is that of his employer sponsored Fritz-ter-Meer-Stiftung – Today Bayer Science & Education Foundation – dedicated to promoting chemistry students through scholarships.

Georg von Schnitzler Nazi lawyer , served 1 year, d. 1962

Bayer was one of the companies which sold a product called Factor VIII concentrate to treat haemophilia. Factor VIII turned out to be infected with HIV and in the U.S. alone, it infected thousands of haemophiliacs, many of whom died in one of the worst drug-related medical disasters ever.

But it was only in 2003 that the New York Times revealed that Bayer had continued producing and selling this infected product to Asia and Latin America after February 1984 when a safe product had become available, in order to save money. Dr. Sidney M. Wolfe, who investigated the scandal, commented, “These are the most incriminating internal pharmaceutical industry documents I have ever seen.”

There is a Fritz ter Meer Educational Foundation which is administered through the Bayer offices at the company’s headquarters in Leverkusen. The foundation offers scholarships for graduate studies in chemistry.

By expressly honoring a man whom the Nuremberg court found guilty of war crimes, the Bayer Company demonstrates it has not learned from the past”.


Otto Rössler (* 6. February 1907 in Eisenstadt, Then Kingdom of Hungary, † 1991 in Marburg) Was an Austrian Semitist and Africanist.He also worked for the Institute for the Study of the Jewish Question. Imprisoned for a time, then freed to resume his ‘research.’

He was convicted as war criminals in the Soviet Union to 25 years in prison but released in 1955 as part of the results obtained by Konrad Adenauer amnesty for German prisoners (see returnees). In Germany, the investigation by the Munich public prosecutor in 1970 were set on the grounds that it could be “the prosecution will not be charged with a chance of success.” [1]

Lombard was active in the aid community on reciprocity of former soldiers of the Waffen-SS and went public at reunions in appearance. He died in 18 September 1992 in Mühldorf am Inn.

Giselher Savoy (born April 15, 1907 in Schweinfurt, † 23 September 1975 in Stuttgart) was a German journalist and National Socialist.
Gestapo, (SD).

Study of the Jewish question by Alfred Rosenberg, from its opening on 27th March 1941 in Frankfurt, he appeared as a speaker with the topic of the Jewish question in the Middle East.

wanted to take the Arabs in particular for the Nazis. He spoke enthusiastically of “shock waves” that the “political earthquake center” in Palestine – were meant to anti-British and anti-Jewish Arab riots led by Mohammed Amin al-Husseini – left behind in Egypt. He welcomed a “definite turning back to the religious traditions of Islam,” by which the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood was meant, and its “strong opposition to Western liberalism.” He was thus an early protagonist of a cross-front between Islamism and fascism.

To his view of Jewish influence manipulated American system of government, he faced a “new world order” in the form of a hegemonic Europe dominated by Germany. The described in his book appraisal and assessment of the Anglo-American world was in Joseph Goebbels was impressed by a reader. This noted on 12 March 1942 in his diary:

“I find the evening a few hours to read the new book of Savoy, to the boundless continent.” Wirsing here is a representation of American life, the American economy, culture and politics. The material that he wrote with is truly staggering. Roosevelt is one of the most serious pests of modern culture and civilization. If we did not succeed, the enemy side, which is composed of Bolshevism, plutocracy and lack of culture to beat once, then go to meet the world of the darkest darkness would. ”

Emphasized in the context of lifelong anti-Americanism Savoy is the fact that he was promoted in 1930 as a fellow of the Rockefeller Foundation owned American Abraham Lincoln Foundation, which he financed include a longer trip to the USA.

Cooperation with the SD abroad, head of “signal”
Wirsing 1940, the Nazi Party and worked during the French campaign as an advisor to Walter Schellenberg, head of Department IV D (defense) and later Chief of the Office VI (SD-abroad) of the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA).

In 1943 he became editor in 1945 editor of the international magazine “Signal”, a publication published in several languages of the High Command of the Armed Forces, and others went for this as a propaganda officer for the troops to Russia. After the German defeat at the Battle of Stalingrad was the strong man at Savoy “signal”. It seemed almost no issue more without an editorial by him. As early as 1938 he had described a recommendation in a staff report as follows: Captain Savoy has proven over the course of cooperation with the SD as a willing, hardworking and extremely valuable employees. This ruling led to his promotion to SS-major. Later he acted as a special officer in a propaganda company on the Eastern Front. Consequently, he advocated the war in the east as a campaign against the absolutely evil and unfathomable.

To 1944 W. wrote for a “German Information,” “the German Information Service in Berlin W 35, Rauchstr. 27. This was a translation in all European languages specialized Propaganda Department of the SS, which was to spread the vision of an anti-Anglo Saxon SS Europe.

In June 1945, Savoy became a prisoner of war and hired there as information gatherers for the U.S. Secret Service, on whose behalf he made 1946 a study tour of the American zone, but remained officially interned. In detention, he advocated the U.S. occupation zone as the 49th state to join the United States.

The award Chamber at Garmisch in 1948 classified him as part of a denazification as a *follower and finished it with a fine of 2000, – Reichsmark, which on appeal was reduced to 500 marks. The magazine Der Spiegel quoted him in 1967, he had called 1943 “the violent elimination of the Jewish element”, and interpreted that he had so that the “appropriateness of Auschwitz” founded. Savoy threatened SPIEGEL Thus, the threat of a lawsuit was not followed by deeds.

He managed them to the largest-circulation weekly newspaper of the Federal Republic (to 1963) to develop. He revealed unwittingly there submerged Horst Schumann, the major T4 as gasification doctor in the campaign have been the killing of sick and disabled people in the era of National Socialism, was involved and was sought for years by the public prosecutor in Frankfurt am Main.

    In 2006, it was discovered that Bayer found out a vaccine it was selling in the United States was accidentally contaminated with HIV.

    In order to cover its tracks, say the journalists in this video (below), Bayer pulled the vaccines off the market and sold them to consumers in Japan, France, Spain and other countries, where hemophiliacs were then contaminated with HIV due to the vaccine.

    And yet, despite these apparent crimes, no Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States. A Bayer spinmeister had this to say: “Bayer behaved responsibly, ethically and humanely… [and its actions] were consistent with regulations.”
    Sure they did. Don’t forget that Bayer is the same pharmaceutical company linked to Nazi Germany’s medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners. They have a long and dark history of being involved in the manufacture of chemical weapons. As stated on
    Anybody who takes anything made by Bayer is, in my opinion, supporting a corporation that has been committing crimes against humanity for nearly a hundred years.
    (Kurt Oppenheim)
    Yes: it is known to all I.G. directors in Auschwitz.7
    “Muller Conradi.”
    We have photographic evidence (see page 60) that I.G. Farben contributed 400,000 RM to Hitler’s political “slush fund.” It was this secret fund which financed the Nazi seizure of control in March 1933. Many years earlier Farben had obtained Wall Street funds for the 1925 cartelization and expansion in Germany and $30 million for American I. G. in 1929, and had Wall Street directors on the Farben board. It has to be noted that these funds were raised and directors appointed years before Hitler was promoted as the German dictator.
    The full story of I,G, Farben and its world-wide ae-tivities before World War II can never be known, as key German records were destroyed in 1945 in anticipation of Allied victory. However, one post-war investigation by the U.S, War Department concluded that:
    Without I. G.’s immense productive facilities, its intense re. search, and vast international affiliations, Germany’s prosecution of the war would have been unthinkable and impossible; Farben not only directed its energies toward arming Germany, but concentrated on weakening her intended victims, and this double-barreled attempt to expand the German industrial potential for war and to restrict that of the rest of the world was not conceived and executed “in the normal course of business.” The proof is overwhelming that I. G. Farben officials had full prior knowledge of Germany’s plan for world conquest and of each specific aggressive act later undertaken ….3

    The Berlin N.W. 7 office of I.G. Farben was the key Nazi overseas espionage center. The unit operated under Farben director Max Ilgner, nephew of I.G. Farben president Hermann Schmitz. Max Ilgner and Hermann Schmitz were on the board of American I.G., with fellow directors Henry Ford of Ford Motor Company, Paul Warburg of Bank of Manhattan, and Charles E. Mitchell of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    One of the more prominent of these Farben intelligence workers in N.W. 7 was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who joined Farben in the early 1930s after completion of an 18-month period of service in the black-uniformed S.S.8
    Consequently, throughout the 1930s I. G. Farben did more than just comply with orders from the Nazi regime. Farben was an initiator and operator for the Nazi plans for world conquest. Farben acted as a research and intelligence organization for the German Army and voluntarily initiated Wehrmacht projects. In fact the Army only rarely had to approach Farben; it is estimated that about 40 to 50 percent of Farben projects for the Army were initiated by Farben itself. In brief, in the words of Dr, von Schnitzler:
    Hermann Schmitz

    American I.G. Farben directors included some of the more prominent members of Wall Street.
    Between 1929 and 1939 there were changes in the make-up of the board of American I.G. The number of directors varied from time to time, although a majority always had I.G. backgrounds or connections, and the board never had less than four American directors. In 1939 — presumably looking ahead to World War II — an effort was made to give the board a more American complexion, but despite the resignation of Hermann Schmitz, Carl Bosch, and Walter Duisberg, and the appointment of seven new directors, seven members still belonged to the I.G. group. This I.G. predominance increased during 1940 and 1941 as American directors, including Edsel Ford, realized the political unhealthiness of I.G. and resigned.

    , the board of American I.G. had three directors from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the most influential of the various Federal Reserve Banks. American I.G. also had interlocks with Standard Oil of New Jersey, Ford Motor Company, Bank of Manhattan (later to become the Chase Manhattan), and A.E.G. (German General Electric). Second, three members of the board of this American I.G. were found guilty at Nuremburg War Crimes Trials. These were the German, not the American, members. Among these Germans was Max Ilgner, director of the I.G. Farben N.W. 7 office in Berlin, i.e., the Nazi pre-war intelligence office. If the directors of a corporation are collectively responsible for the activities of the corporation, then the American directors should also have been placed on trial at Nuremburg, along with the German directors — that is, if the purpose of the trials was to determine war guilt. Of course, if the purpose of the trials had been to divert attention away from the U.S. involvement in Hitler’s rise to power, they succeeded very well in such an objective.
