Julius Streicher founded the infamous Der Stürmer in 1923. He was appointed to Gauleiter of Franconia until he was removed from this position in 1940. He had no role in planning or carrying out wartime policies of the Hitler regime. Despite this fact and the fact that his paper was private and not sanctioned by the Nazi party he was found guilty of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg (IMT). In October of 1946 he was hung in the Nuremberg Prison gymnasium.
In the article The Torture of Julius Streicher Keith Stimely explains: “He [Streicher] was unique among the convicted defendants in that he was tried not for anything he was alleged to have done, or ordered, or acquiesced in, but for what he had thought and written.” This statement is reflected in the Nuremberg Trial Judgement leveled against Streicher. You can find the complete judgement here.
What this means is that Julius Streicher received capital punishment for his political speech. Overseeing the IMT was the United States along with Britain, France and the Soviet Union. When it came to former wartime enemies the US was able to put aside its founding value of free speech in order to participate in putting a man to death for his political speech. By the way, how fair is a trial when the prosecutors only consist of former wartime enemies and no neutral party whatsoever?
And it’s not like the Allies wasn’t making dehumanizing propaganda against the Germans and other wartime enemies. For the IMT to put Streicher to death for things they themselves were guilty of is hypocrisy, pure and simple.
Stricher also claims that he was tortured not only under Allied custody while awaiting trial, but also before he was even accused of a crime. German historian, Werner Maser, openly justified his ill treatment.
Yes, America and the other Allies feel morally vindicated when it comes to justifying unfair treatment toward Nazis because of their anti-Semitism, yet they allow open anti-White racial hatred in countries where White people are the native inhabitants (see images below).
To which this since banned Twitter account poses an interesting question to ponder.
For in-depth reading on Streicher I recommend reading Streicher, Rosenberg, and the Jews, by Thomas Dalton. This book contains transcripts of the Nuremberg Trials along with commentary from the author.
