Download PDF for this date

Three Nazi war criminals — including Dr. Joseph F. Buehler; who served as Secretary of State during the Nazi occupation of Poland and was convicted by the Supreme Rational Tribunal of having planned the murder of more than 2,000,000 Jews — were executed today.

In addition to Buehler, Albert Warmann and Alfred Kiper, Gestapo officials who were especially active in the Kolomay area, were executed following their conviction by a Lublin war crimes court.
