JULIUS STREICHER (1885 - 1946) Nazi journalist and politician, editor of "Der Sturmer" and virulent anti-Semite, executed at Nuremberg. Important typed D.S. in bold pencil, 1p. legal folio, [Nuremberg], Nov. 25, 1945, in German. An official International Military Tribunal application form for a "Defendant's Application for Summons for Witness", requesting that Fritz Herrwerth of Nuremberg, presumed held in the P.O.W. Camp at Mosburg, be summoned by the Tribunal to give evidence on Streicher's behalf: "This witness was present in the night of 9th November 1938 [Kristallnacht] at the conversation which took place between the SA Obergruppenfuhrer von Obernitz and me concerning the proposed demonstration against the Jews...the witness knows further that when those events were discussed in Pleikershof I was again enraged at the events of that time and got very excited about the acts of the SS..." Also signed by HANNS MARX, Streicher's attorney, also in pencil. Very good. Fritz Herrwerth was indeed summoned to appear at the Nuremberg Trials on Apr. 29, 1946 where he fully supported Streicher's contention that he was appalled at the attacks on the homes, businesses and synagogues of Jews. Provenance: The present document originates from the personal archives of Hans Werner, who in 1945, as the Director of Printing at the International Military Tribunal, was responsible for overseeing the printing of the Record of the Trial of Major War Criminals for the Nuremberg Trials. Professionally conserved in the early 1980s, the work being carried out under the supervision of the India Office in London.
