here's the Krupp family finally facing justice. right?

US Supreme Court Justice Robert H Jackson, who just "didn't hear" that Gustav was senile and unfit for trial, whoops!
Krupp Trials
Ewald Löser over here looking like Yakub
Dr. Heinrich Kronstein of Georgetown law, who lied about the Krupp trials to the US press. Columbia Law Review also flatly lied.
Tilo von Wilmowsky, yet again, who had to run the company for a time
John J. McCloy - the power elite's axe man
they made him intern the Japanese, appoint Reinhard Gehlen as head of intelligence for West Germany, and he was the guy who had to pardon Alfried Krupp. he got all the shit jobs, but was well-compensated for it
Eleanor Roosevelt wrote McCloy, the High Commissioner, and asked “Why are we freeing so many Nazis?”
lmao. it's a good episode, check it out
