Baldur von Schirach
Schirach surrendered in 1945 and was one of the officials put on trial at Nuremberg. At the trial Schirach along with Albert Speer denounced Hitler. He said that he did not know about the extermination camps. He also provided evidence that he had protested to Martin Bormann about the inhumane treatment of the Jews. Also, it was revealed by Schirach at Nuremberg that the roots of his anti-Semitism could be found in the readings of Henry Ford's The International Jew. He was found guilty, on 1 October 1946, of crimes against humanity for his deportation of the Viennese Jews. He was sentenced and served 20 years as a prisoner in Spandau Prison
