Hello,

ansata1976 wrote:i am looking for the defendants of the Trial in Oldenburg 1946(Willi Herold) and their sentences and further informations.


for a rough sketch of Willi Herold's activities look here: http://www.feldgrau.net/forum/viewtopic ... t=muffrika

The book by Pantcheff mentioned here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willi_Herold also looks promising.

These sites also give some information:
http://www.taz.de/index.php?id=archivse ... 4/11/a0308
http://euhausen.piranho.de/hauptmannherold.html

According to the last one there were 14 defendants in the Oldenburg trial. Seven of them (including Herold) received the death sentence. One of the defendants sentenced to death was acquitted later. Herold and five others were executed in Wolfenbüttel prison on Nov. 14th, 1946.


Best regards
Torsten

I found this information about the trial in Oldenburg against Willi Herold and other:

In August 1946 a war crimes trial began against Herold and 6 further accused in Oldenburg. They were made responsible for the murder by 125 humans. Herold, which did not show regret, and 6 further codefendants were condemned to death.
On 14 November 1946 the judgements in the prison were executed by by the drop hatchet.


"Im August 1946 beginnt in Oldenburg ein Kriegsverbrecherprozeß, wie es ihn in der britischen Zone noch nicht gegeben hat. Auf der Anklagebank 14 Männer. Sie werden beschuldigt, für den Tod von 125 Menschen verantwortlich zu sein. Jeder Angeklagte trägt ein Schild mit einer Nummer vor der Brust. Die Eins bleibt Herold vorbehalten.
Er zeigt keinerlei Schuldbewußtsein. Die Frage des Anklägers, ob "die Erschießung all dieser Männer" sein Gewissen belastet habe, beantwortet er mit "Nein". Am 29. August 1946 werden Herold und sechs Mitangeklagte zum Tode verurteilt. Einer von ihnen wird später begnadigt (Who?????), die anderen sterben am 14. November 1946 unter dem Fallbeil im Gefängnis von Wolfenbüttel.
Das Gericht verurteilt Sie, Herold, Hagewald, Meyer, Schütte, Euler, Brandt und Peller, zum Tode.
Art, Ort und Zeitpunkt der Vollstreckung mögen durch höhere Stellen festgelegt werden."

I need the full name and more information of:

Hagewald
Meyer
Schütte
Euler
Brandt
Peller
