Roland Freisler (1893-1945)
Supreme Judge of the People's Court (Volksgerichtshof)
Prisoner of war in Russia during World War I. After the war returns to Germany as a Bolshevik.
Later becomes a lawyer. Joins the Nazi Party in 1925 and the Ministry of Justice in 1934.
Appointed president of the People's Court in August 1942.
In February 1943, Freisler presides over the political trial of the Munich students who belong to the dissident Anti-Nazi White Rose movement. Barely in their twenties, he sentences all of them to death by the guillotine.
Freisler's brief moment of fame in history comes in the wake of the failed July 20, 1944 coup attempt against the Nazi regime. Throughout the second half of 1944 he presides over the show trials of many of the July 20th conspirators including those of Witzleben, Hoepner, Hofacker, Goerdeler, Leber, Leuschner, Trott, Moltke, Schwanenfeld, and Bonhoeffer.
The obscene manner in which Freisler humiliates the unfortunate July 20th conspirators in his court room - bellowing at them non-stop and denying them the right to wear belts or suspenders so that their trousers fall - prompts even members of Hitler's entourage to recommend that he be reigned in.
As though by divine justice, the malevolent judge Roland Freisler is killed in February 1945 when a bomb from an Allied air-raid scores a direct hit on the court house. At that exact moment, conspirator Lieutenant Fabian von Schlabrendorff is inside the court room waiting for his turn to be convicted and sentenced to death. Freisler is discovered crushed to death by a massive column that has fallen on top of him, his hands still clutching a folder that contains Schlabrendorff's file. Freisler's successor quickly acquits Schlabrendorff after determining lack of sufficient evidence.
Preface written from Dr. Roland Freisler with facsimile signature.
