Hess

The last presentation on the individual responsibility of defendants was devoted to the Defendant Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s principal deputy in the Nazi party and the Nazi leader who drew worldwide attention when he flew an airplane from Germany to Scotland in 1941.
The presentation of this case to the Tribunal was delayed until the French Prosecution had completed its case because of a disabling accident to Hess’ first defense counsel. The submission was made by Lt. Colonel J.M.G. Griffith-Jones of the British Delegation on Feb. 7, 1946.
