Questions? This blog is dedicated to the Nuremberg Trials that took place at the end of WWII. This site will be focused on the defendants (during and even before the trial) and feature mostly pictures and gifs but also extracts from books about the trial or somehow related to it and the defendants. This is not a blog that glorifies the Allies or claims the trial was legal, fair and without fault BUT THIS IS NOT A BLOG THAT GLORIFIES ANY CRIMES OR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, EXTREMIST IDEOLOGIES OR PARTIES/MOVEMENTS and we, its owners, do not support any such things. Oh and there will be humor (funny gifs and pictures and comments) so if you find that tacky...too bad! - Nuremberg Trials (@nurembergtrials)

Prisonernumber7 did he believe in a master @nurembergtrials


“Did he believe in a ‘Master Race’? Hess smiled. He had never used the expression. ‘These expressions were employed by German propaganda for foreign consumption. They were not used in Germany. Anyway, I do not believe in this concept’.”

- Eugene Bird, The Loneliest Man in the World

Frauvonribbentrop von ribbentrop entered the @nurembergtrials


Von Ribbentrop entered the execution chamber at 1:11 a.m. Nuremberg time. He was stopped immediately inside the door by two Army sergeants who closed in on each side of him and held his arms, while another sergeant who had followed him in removed manacles from his hands and replaced them with a leather strap. It was planned originally to permit the condemned men to walk from their cells to the execution chamber with their hands free, but all were manacled immediately following Goering’s suicide.

Von Ribbentrop was able to maintain his apparent stoicism to the last. He walked steadily toward the scaffold between his two guards, but he did not answer at first when an officer standing at the foot of the gallows went through the formality of asking his name. When the query was repeated he almost shouted, ‘Joachim von Ribbentrop!’ and then mounted the steps without any sign of hesitation.

When he was turned around on the platform to face the witnesses, he seemed to clench his teeth and raise his head with the old arrogance. When asked whether he had any final message he said, ‘God protect Germany (Gott schütze Deutschland),’ in German, and then added, ‘May I say something else? (Darf ich noch etwas sagen?)

The interpreter nodded and the former diplomatic wizard of Nazidom spoke his last words in loud, firm tones: ‘My last wish is that Germany realize its entity and that an understanding be reached between the East and the West. I wish peace to the world. (Mein letzter Wunsch ist, dass Deutschland seine Einheit wieder findet, dass eine Verständigung zwischen Ost und West kommt für den Frieden in der Welt!)’ As the black hood was placed in position on his head, Von Ribbentrop looked straight ahead. Then the hangman adjusted the rope, pulled the lever, and Von Ribbentrop slipped away to his fate…
