    (August 18, 1890-May 31, 1960)
    Reich Minister of Economics
    President of the Reichsbank during World War II
    He was Hitler's Economic Advisor.
    He participated in plans to ban Jews from German society.
    Along with Heinrich Himmler, he received gold taken from Jews by way of gold fillings and rings after the owners died in concentration camps.
    He participated in plans to rob the Czech gold reserves.
    He assisted on the attacks on Russia.
    He was convicted with crimes against humanity and was sentenced to life imprisonment.
    He never took a lead role in the activities in which he participated. Ultimately it saved his life from the hangman.
    He was seen crying during the presentation of evidence at Nuremberg.
    He said at his trial: 'I signed the laws for the aryanization of Jewish property. Whether that makes me legally guilty or not, is another matter. But it makes me morally guilty, there is no doubt about that.'
    Germany did see some economic growth during his post as minister of Economics.
