Willy Gaertner, lawyer

Post by kovacs » 10 Jun 2021 23:07

Willy Gaertner was a leading Nazi lawyer in Silesia and candidate for the Reichstag. He was born in 1899 and died in 1942. Does anyone know the circumstances of his death? Thank you in advance.

kovacs,

the german Wiki article known to you already ?

Also spelled as "Willi Gärtner" or "Willy Gärtner" in other online sources...

There should be an obituary in Schlesische Tageszeitung or other local Breslau newspaper.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Hans, yes, I have read the German Wikipedia entry on Gaertner. Thanks for pointing out the alternative spellings of his name.
