SS-Obersturmbannführer (since Jan. 1941) Adolf Hermann Ott was from February 15, 1942, to January 1943 leader of Sonderkommando 7b (Einsatzgruppe B), responsible for numerous mass murders in Russia and Belarus .
On September 1, 1922, he joined the NSDAP ( membership number 2433). In 1931 he joined the SS (SS No. 13.294). After 1933 he became an employee of the German Labor Front (DAF) in Lindau. Since 1935 he worked full-time for the SD in Württemberg .
In February 1942 he succeeded Günther Rausch as the commander of Sonderkommando 7b. Over the next eleven months, Ott organized between 80 and 100 mass murders of civilians in the Bryansk area .
In the Nuremberg Einsatzgruppen Trial in 1947, he justified the mass murders by claiming that the victims were partisans and saboteurs . When asked by the presiding judge Musmanno what happened to Jewish prisoners, Ott replied: “In accordance with the Führer’s order , all Jews were basically shot.”
Ott was sentenced to death in 1948 , pardoned to life imprisonment in 1951, and on May 9, 1958 Ott was released from the Landsberg War Crimes Prison. He died a free man in Inzell in 1973.
