nazi crimes on trial
(east-german trials)


Listed here are the names of only 215 convicted persons. The names of the other 1419 defendants are not included here. Since these defendants had not been sentenced to either a death or a life sentence, or because, after 1991,  the trial against them was declared a violation of the laws of a constitutional state, their names had to be anonymized. This latter circumstance particularly applied to all those convicted in the so-called Walheim-Trials. Names of persons commonly known as actors of contemporary history are never abbreviated.

If you're looking for trials which can't be identified because the defendant is not included in the list, we advise you to search for the case by way of the Agency or Crime location entries. You'll often find what you're looking for through the use of these search options. If you don't, it's probably not there.
