On This Day… The Verdicts Of Nuremberg

Written by: George Chittenden : 01 Oct 2019

It was on this day, 1st Oct, back in 1946 when the final verdicts of the International War Crimes Tribunal in Nuremberg were read. Twelve high-ranking Nazis including Hermann Goering, were sentenced to death. The trial had lasted nine months, and the verdicts were read over two days, September 30th and October 1st, 1946. Twelve defendants were sentenced to death, three to life imprisonment, four to long prison terms, and three defendants were found not guilty.

Those sentenced to life imprisonment stayed in Nuremberg until July 18th, 1947, when they were transported to the Allied War Criminals Prison in Berlin-Spandau, where they remained until their terms were served. The death sentences were delivered via the noose in the old gymnasium on the grounds of the Nuremberg Prison on October 16th, 1946. Hermann Göring escaped justice by committing suicide just a few hours before the execution of his sentence. Following the hangings, the bodies were cremated, and the ashes were thrown in a tributary of the Isar River.
