https://www.gedenkbuch-wuppertal.de/de/person/maas
Pressevermerk: "Am 13 Juli 1944 ist der 37jährige Ernst Maas aus Wuppertal-Elberfeld hingerichtet worden, den das Sondergericht in Wuppertal als Volksschädling zum Tode verurteilt hat. Maas hat nach dem Terrorangriff auf Wuppertal-Barmen aus dem Keller eines brennenden Hauses eine größere Anzahl von Kleidungstücken geplündert.
Translated:

Press comment: "37-year-old Ernst Maas from Wuppertal-Elberfeld was executed on 13 July 1944. The Special Court in Wuppertal sentenced him to death as a people's pest." Maas has stolen large quantity of clothes from the basement of a burning house after the terrorist attack on Wuppertal-Barmen.
This is another example of death sentence for looting after a bombing raid.

Katowice prison in 1930's

Post by Pete26 » 13 Aug 2019 02:55

Katowice prison was one of Central Execution Sites of the Third Reich. Katowice guillotine (Tegel type) was set up in a separate building made of red brick. This photo gallery shows what this prison looked like in the 1930's, prior to invasion of Poland by German troops in 1939.

Dortmund execution notice

Post by Pete26 » 03 Sep 2019 02:00

Irena Sibinska execution notice.jpg

Polish girl Irena Skibinska was guillotined in Dortmund on 17 September 1943 at the age of 18.

The last sentence in the execution notice reads: "She had set fire to her employer's estate in revenge".

She was sentenced to death in Bielefeld which is about 100 km northeast of Dortmund, where the sentence was carried out. This death sentence is eerily similar to that of 17 year old Polish boy Walerjan Wrobel who was guillotined for arson in Hamburg on 25 August 1942. Most likely Irena was a forced laborer in Germany, just like Walerjan Wrobel.
