About this Item

Hardcover w / dustjacket. Signed Copy Signed "Sincerely, Alfried von Bohlen und Halbach, Hanover Fair, 1960." Very good condition; edges, corners, and covers of book show minor wear. No underlining; no highlighting; no internal markings. Dj is good in Brodart plastic protection with a small open tear at front bottom tip and material loss at spine head. Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach (photo on p. 407) was, with most of the Krupp board of directors, indicted for war crimes at Nuremberg -- one of thirteen trials at Nurmberg. All international judges refused to support the prosecution, and the American judge was the only juror to hear the case. On April 5, 1948, after hearing 141 witnesses for the defence, the American judge declared a verdict of "not guilty" Judge Anderson declared that the idea of an owner or head of a private enterprise being capable, in common with his employees, of hatching a criminal conspiracy against peace with the participation of the Government of his own country was unprecedented and might have "incalculable consequences." Another source states: "Alfried Krupp, widely regarded as a "super-Nazi" for financing Hitler and Himmler (and because he utilised slave labour and plundered occupied territories) was personally "pardoned" from a pending war crimes trial by John McCloy - High Commissioner in Germany. Not only that, but McCloy, a former director of the Ford Foundation, rescinded a property confiscation order that would have stripped the Baron of his enormous holdings." Stored in sealed plastic protection. In the event of a problem we guarantee full refund. 1954. Hardcover w / dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # J-05503
