Following the Second World War, there were a number of war crimes trials that aimed to bring the perpetrators of the conflict and also the Holocaust to justice.
The most high profile focussed at Nuremberg, and the Nuremberg Trials featured many of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle and his highest ranking Nazis. One of these men placed on trial was Ernst Kaltenbrunner, the Chief of the Reich Security Main Office or the RSHA.
Kaltenbrunner has gone down in History as one of the worst war criminals of World War 2, and it was his duty to oversee the Gestapo, SD and Kripo. He was a man who helped to contribute to the deportations and deaths inside the concentration camps, and he was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands. He was close with Heinrich Himmler, and Kaltenbrunner was noted for his tall stature and his scarred face, and some even suggest that Himmler was terrified of Kaltenbrunner and his temper.
Following the Second World War, Ernst Kaltenbrunner was arrested on top of a mountain by US Army soldiers after he attempted to flee, and was given away when his mistress ran up to him as he was apprehended. He was placed on trial at Nuremberg despite suffering from two subarachnoid haemorrhages, and for his crimes he was sentenced to death.
He met infamous executioner John C woods at the gallows, and for his crimes committed under the guise of the Second World War he paid the ultimate price. So join us today as we look at, ‘The JUSTIFIED Execution Of Ernst Kaltenbrunner, The Monster Of The Holocaust.’
