J. Duncan wrote:That Ley might have been executed is probably correct...would he have DESERVED it? That's debatable. Ley was corrupt with money, he broke the unions and knocked a few Social Democrats and Communists about. What would have gotten Ley hanged was his anti-semitic speeches ("Jude muss sterben!")...Ley was in the same class as Julius Streicher...crass, vicious, inflammatory...fanning the flames of hate...but did he deserve death? I do not think so. I do not hold that Streicher deserved it either.
You're missing the point of why those two deserved the deathpenalty they got.
Even ignoring the very good argument, that the deathpenalties served to make sure, that NSDAP was dead and buried, there is a world of difference between your regular, run of the mill antisemite who lets everybody on the internet know how he feels, and a man like Streicher or Ley, whose antisemitism led to the death of millions.
People like Ley and Streicher, and the way they poisoned the minds of millions, led directly to the holocaust and a host of other warcrimes. Their antisemitism wasn't a crime. But that their antisemitism led to millions of dead was.
They weren't just harmless jewhating-nutters who let everybody know how they felt. They worked tirelessly at indoctrinating millions of Germans into perpetrating unexcusable crimes.

Michal - interesting photo. Any idea who the troop of folk artists are (nationality)? The picture appears to have been taken on a cruise ship.

A good example of the muddled double standards the Nazis applied in matters of race. The Slavs were officially untermenschen and destined for extermination. But because Bulgaria was a German ally and the Germans admired the militarism of the Bulgarians (the "Prussians of the Balkans") they were apparently exempt from this ruling. Likewise the Croats and the Slovaks presumably.

Late in the war, his wife Inge already dead from suicide, Ley took a mistress, a young Estonian girl - of "Baltic-Dinaric" race. Goebbels preferred brunettes and almost sacrificed his career to be with a Czechoslovakian (a Slavic race)...her name was Lida Baarova and Goebbels actually thought of giving up his position and becoming an ambassador to Japan. Hitler had to order Goebbels to give her up and to go back to his wife Magda.

This is the Robert Ley cruise ship for the German workers.
I remeber read somewhere, Hitlet never was happy with the name of this ship.
