Two Jewish families in the village of Altenhausen near Coburg were sentenced to be hung by a “military court” improvised by a band of thirty armed Hitler soldiers. Coburg is the mobilization center of Hitler and Erhardt. The Jews finally had their sentences “commuted” by their assailants, the affair ending in the merciless heating of the victims, after being separated from all their possessions, including money and valuables, in addition to having their homes completely demolished.
