von Schirach II

On May 23, 1946, the defense case of Baldur Von Schirach was commenced by his counsel, Dr. Fritz Sauter calling him to the stand. Von Schirach was the Hitler Youth Leader and Gauleiter of Vienna. The defendant testified about how he got involved and how the Youth Group functioned.
Thomas Dodd, American prosecutor, cross examined Von Schirach on May 24, 1946. He asked about songs included in the song book of the Hitler Youth. One spoke of the Jews as traitors who enslaved misguided people.
