Guth the next day, in which he admitted that he was responsible for leasing Hartheim Castle to the Reich in 1939 for the killing of mental patients who were incurably ill or unable to work.He also admitted to inspecting the Mauthausen gas chamber once and to participating in the execution of ten prisoners of unknown nationality during the night in March or April 1945.When he refused to talk after he was captured, Eigruber was sent to Washington, DC for questioning.

Guth the next day, in which he admitted that he was responsible for leasing Hartheim Castle to the Reich in 1939 for the killing of mental patients who were incurably ill or unable to work.

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.

So Bernard Bernstein was proceeding under the assumption that Americans would not only steal all the German art treasures from the Germans, but they would also steal everything from the Soviets, who were entitled to the loot from their future zone of occupation of Germany.

So it turns out that Eigruber’s crime was that he wanted to destroy art that belonged to Germany, rather than see it go to the enemy as the “spoils of war.” Strangely, that was not mentioned in the book about the trials of the German war criminals.

Several years ago, I wrote about Eigruber on my website.Eigruber’s statement ended with the following words: “This statement was made by me on three pages on the 19th of February 1946, in Dachau, Germany, of my own free will and without compulsion.To save time, a clerk wrote it down on a typewriter.The following quote is from my website: The “big fish” among the accused in the Mauthausen case was August Eigruber, the former Gauleiter of Upper Austria.He was charged with participating in the common design to violate the Laws and Usages of War because, along with other alleged crimes, he had been involved in helping Heinrich Himmler to acquire the property where the Mauthausen camp was built.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.The Soviet Union had not signed the Geneva Convention of 1929, and they were killing German POWs, so the Germans did not think that they were obligated to observe the Geneva Convention with regard to the Soviet Union.August Eigruber did not personally commit any war crimes at Mauthausen. He was charged with crimes at Mauthausen under the “common plan” concept that was invented by the Allies AFTER the war.Under this concept, anyone who had anything whatsoever to do with a concentration camp was a war criminal.Apparently Eigruber’s real crime was that he wanted to blow up the Altaussee salt mine to destroy the “spoils of war” to which the Americans felt that they were entitled. [Bernard] Bernstein (one of the Monuments Men) was proceeding under the assumption that everything in the [Merkers] mine, including the [German] artwork, was captured enemy loot.
