An updated list of German war criminals hanged by American authorities in Europe may be found here. The list is not as comprehensive as it might be since it omits three executions of SS personnel (*) carried out in Italy in 1946, and the math contains a rather basic, although small error (the site figure of 281 executions should be 284 for four locations). In addition to the seven other hangings in Italy and Austria of war criminals, there were two known executions by shootings (Curt Brun and Anton Dostler) not mentioned here. We therefore have a total figure of 293 war criminals executed by American authorities in Europe (283 if you consider Nuremberg as an international affair).

(*) A brief description of the case may be seen here. It will be necessary to scroll down to find the case (#48, page 5).

I just came across all the original court documents for these trials including notes to as why sentences were changed to hanging. And what we're done with the bodies. They were burned and ashes buried. Also true last statement and wives motion for clemency

This is my first post on this form. In perusing this form, I've noticed information on two war criminals supposedly executed at War Crimes Prison #1 Landsberg who were not hanged there or anywhere else. SS Untersturmfuhrer Bruno Skierka was sentenced to death by an American military court at Dachau in the first Flossenberg Concentration Camp trial. His death sentence was confirmed but eventually reduced to life imprisonment by U.S. Army General Thomas Handy. Following that sentence reduction it was further reduced to 12 years and Skierka was released from Landsberg sometime in the early to mid 1950s.

The second Nazi war criminal in question was Ludwig Stier, a Wehrmacht captain, sentenced to death by hanging at Dachau in the case of U.S. vs Ernst Walter Dura et al for crimes committed at Mauthausen Concentration Camp. While under sentence of death and awaiting execution at Landsberg, Stier died of cardiovascular disease on September 5, 1947. He, like SS Standartenfuhrer Hermann Pister, died at Landsberg before his execution could be carried out. I discovered this when I saw that neither Skierka or Stier were on the list of executed war criminals in the Dachau cases signed by U.S. Army Colonel Damon M. Gunn, JAGC, on April 7, 1950. At that time there were no other executions of Nazi war criminals at Landsberg until the final seven were hanged on June 7, 1951. I hope this sheds some light on these two cases.

I did notice that SS Rottenfuhrer Michael Heller, sentenced to death at Dachau in the case of U.S. vs Franz Kofler et al for crimes committed at Mauthausen, was not on Col. Gunn's list of names of those hanged at Landsberg. He was hanged at Landsberg on November 19, 1948, according to documents I've seen on this forum. I assume Heller's omission on that list was an oversight by the typist in Col. Gunn's office.

Posters visiting the forum may be interested to learn that the infamous John C. Woods, an executioner at Landsberg and Buremberg is the subject of an extremely well researched biography, released just last month.
