POLITICS

An apparently ordinary man from a family evangelical Christian background who became an extraordinary practitioner of Nazi evil. In service of Hitler and the The Reich, he had overall responsibility for the management of Jewish Affairs in the Gestapo. This moved from initial programmes of deportation and Zionist support to the 'Final Solution' of active transport for extermination. A major Nazi war criminal. After the war he escaped to Argentina. In 1960 he was caught and flown to Israel where he was famously tried, found guilty and executed. .
