The Inaugural Benjamin B. Ferencz Essay Competition-16
According to Joshua Greene’s book , the chief prosecutor at Dachau, Lt. William Denson, put in a call to Robert Jackson, the chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg IMT and told him, “Send me Eigruber.I’ll hang him high as Haman.” Haman was the villain in the biblical story on which the Jewish holiday of Purim is based.

According to Joshua Greene’s book , the chief prosecutor at Dachau, Lt. William Denson, put in a call to Robert Jackson, the chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg IMT and told him, “Send me Eigruber.

Denson made good on his boast: Eigruber was hanged on May 28, 1947. Guth testified on the witness stand that he had not coerced or threatened Eigruber in any way.

On February 18, 1946, August Eigruber was brought from Nuremberg to Dachau and turned over to Lt. Although he had previously refused to talk, Eigruber voluntarily signed a statement for Lt.

Hartheim Castle, near Linz, was also under Eigruber’s jurisdiction and he had leased it to the Reich.

Prisoners from Mauthausen had been taken to the castle to be gassed, according to confessions obtained by the American military interrogators from several of the accused men.

On page 371, just after the quote about Bernard Bernstein, we find this information about the Ohrdruf labor camp: In all my research about Ohrdruf, I never learned about the starving prisoners eating the entrails of the dead for food.

I had to look up the word entrails to make sure of the meaning of the word.

I have written extensively about Ohrdruf on my website and on my blog.

I found the name August Eigruber while I was looking up something else.

When he refused to talk after he was captured, Eigruber was sent to Washington, DC for questioning.

Eigruber’s importance was such that he was originally slated to be among the men who were tried at the Nuremberg IMT.
