Nelte

On Jan. 25, 1946, Dr. Otto Nelte, counsel for Defendant Wilhelm Keitel, in German objected to the French Prosecutor Dubost’s reference to the “Nacht und Nebel” (Night and Fog) decree as being the words of his client. Dubost responded by saying “that Keitel had signed it, but that Hitler had conceived it. Therefore, i made allusion to the military honor of this general, who was not afraid to become the lackey of Hitler.”
