    (March 12, 1877-October 16, 1946)
    Born in Alsenz, Germany
    Minister of the Interior of the Third Reich (1933-43)
    Protector of Bohemia and Moravia (1943-45)
    Convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremburg Trial and executed
    Whenever Hitler was arrested during his early Nazi career, Frick used his position as a Bavarian police officer to release him.
    He was fired by the police for participating in the Beer Hall Putsch, in which the Nazis tried to overthrow the government of Bavaria.
    He signed the Enabling Act that formally turned Germany into a Nazi dictatorship (1933).
    He co-wrote the Nuremburg Laws that stripped German Jews of their rights.
    As Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, he sent thousands of Jews to the Auschwitz concentration camp.
    He claimed, 'Hitler was undoubtedly a genius, but he lacked self-control.'
    He tried to limit the use of 'protective custody' orders to send people to concentration camps (although this was motivated mainly by a power struggle with Heinrich Himmler).
    He was replaced as Interior Minister by Himmler.
    His son died in World War II.
    He was hanged for his crimes.
