WALTER BUCH
Notepad page signed by Walter Buch, Supreme Magistrate of Germany's Nazi Party, in Nuremberg, Germany in 1945. Buch appears to have been only a witness and not a defendant at the Nuremberg Trials, although he was classified one of Nazi Gemany's "Major Offenders" four years later.
Signature: "Walter Büch./Nürnberg, [illegible] 28.12.45." in pencil. Pencil notations in unknown hand at bottom right corner. 5x3 ruled notepad page with rounded right corners. Buch (1883-1949) was Supreme Magistrate of Germany's Nazi Party from 1934 until his capture by the Allies in 1944. A longtime friend of Adolf Hitler who participated in the Munich Beer Hall Putsch (Nov. 9, 1923), Buch was put in charge of the Nazi Party's Committee for Investigation and Settlement, a feared tribunal that enforced party discipline and whose judgments could not be appealed. Buch was intimately involved in at least two Nazi atrocities. He helped to organize the first, the June 30, 1934 destruction of the Nazi SA leadership by the SS, also known as "the Night of Long Knives". He also justified light punishments for SS and SA members who went beyond their orders during the "Kristallnacht" pogrom (Nov. 9, 1938), which resulted in the deaths of 91 Jews, the deportation of 25,000 to 30,000 more to concentration camps and the destruction or ransacking of over 200 synagogues and thousands of Jewish homes and businesses. According to Buch, Jews were enemies of the Germany, so Party members who killed Jews were only carrying out Hitler's will and were given light punishments. He was captured by the Allies after World War II and sentenced to five years hard labor in a Bavarian prison camp. Buch doesn't appear to have been a defendant at the Nuremberg trials. However, he was classified a "Major Offender" at his second de-Nazification trial in July 1949. He later committed suicide. Lightly toned. Binder holes along left edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
