Trivia Quiz After the war, some of those responsible for crimes committed during the Holocaust were brought to trial. Nuremberg, Germany, was chosen as a site for trials that took place in 1945 and 1946. Judges from the Allied powers presided over the hearings of twenty-two major Nazi criminals. Twelve prominent Nazis were sentenced to death. Most of the defendants admitted to the crimes of which they were accused, although most claimed that they were simply following the orders of a higher authority. Those individuals directly involved in the killing received the most severe sentences. Other people who played key roles in the Holocaust, including high-level government officials, and business executives who used concentration camp inmates as forced laborers, received short prison sentences or no penalty at all. The verdicts were announced on the 1st of October 1946.

In this quiz, we will take a look at ten of these infamous men representing the " creme de la creme" of the Nazi Leadership. This quiz is not built for speed because its purpose is educational. If you think that one fact is incorrect, do not hesitate to flag it up. Enjoy and do not forget to rate it. My sources are Wikipedia, ushmm.org and eyewitnesstohistory.com.

Some of the executed displayed sociopathic tendencies and
should have been given a life sentence instead of the death
penalty.

Good quiz. I still think that there is a good chance Hess
was murdered. Soviets had become suddenly willing to let
him go, but then the Brits got cold feet. HIs son said Hess
could barely lift his arms and could not have hanged himself.
Chalk up another one to MI5. Reptilicus
