Military Personnel
    (January 30, 1915-July 13, 1976)
    Born in Berlin, Germany
    Regimental colonel in the Waffen SS
    Head of the First Division of the Liebstandardte SS Adolf Hitler
    Spent 11 years in prison for war crimes (1945-56)
    His unit was nicknamed the ‘Blowtorch Battalion’ for burning down Russian villages and killing their inhabitants.
    His unit murdered 300 American POWs in the Malmedy Massacre (December 17, 1944).
    His troops also killed over 100 Belgian civilians including women and children.
    He was unrepentant to the end, saying, ‘I was a Nazi and I remain one… The Germany of today is no longer a great nation, it has become a province of Europe.’
    He offered to take all the blame for the Malmedy Massacre if the war crimes court would set his men free.
    His death sentence was commuted on the grounds that improper pre-trial procedures had tainted the process.
    He died when his house was firebombed by a group of former Resistance members calling themselves the Avengers.
