Obituary of Liselotte Podleski Podleski: Liselotte Meier a resident of Chatham. Meier participated in the planning of massacres that occurred in 1942-43 in the region, and was by some accounts the most knowledgeable person in the Lida office. The Ortskommandatur was part of the military administration. She was arrested on the 6th of June 1945 and brought to trial on the 6th of July 1948 at the district court in Krakow where she was convicted of war crimes and sentenced to death by hanging. But she was a mother herself, with two children of her own. Mass murder occurred close to villages and towns: as they went about their daily lives neither officials in the German administration nor the local population could have failed to see or hear the aktions. She was described as the most hated woman in the camp.

However, the Commandants of many of the concentration camps were caught and in most cases given the death penalty. That Jews were the enemy and their annihilation the answer was taken for granted by millions of women who would later deny knowing what was going on under their noses. Two of the women were acquitted, two received prison terms but Ruth Closius was condemned to death. A line had been crossed. On January 24th, 1948, all twenty one prisoners were executed in groups of five or six within the Montelupich prison in Krakow. Vol 2 p 437 According to data from the German witness Zipper, who came from Lida, Lida had about 25,000 inhabitants at the outbreak of the Russian campaign.

Obituary of Liselotte Podleski

liselotte meier

Liselotte Podleski passed away at Riverview Gardens on Saturday October 25, 2008 at the age of 86. At least half a million young women joined in this colonisation process, and became accomplices to genocide on an unprecedented scale. She was arrested on the 29th of August 1945 in the Bavarian mountains. There are records of at least three other women who were executed. This placed them at the very centre of the Nazi murder machinery, but they, like so many others, chose to shut their eyes and benefit from their proximity to power.

One observer noted that Altvater often lured children with sweets. She saw crowds of people entering the crematorium, masses of Jews, and later nobody would come out again, all you could see was smoke. She marched into a building being used as a makeshift hospital and through the children's ward, eyeing each bed-ridden child. A line had been crossed. Here she maltreated sick prisoners and also took part in horrific experiments.

Secretaries had another important role, too. Vol 5 p 783, 789, 795, 806, 847, 858, vol 7 p 1088, 1125, vol 12 p 1679, vol 14 p 1954, 1956 It is the opinion of the accused Windisch that his demeanor in Lida had nothing to do with arrogance. Erna Petri — callous dispatcher of those six Jewish boys — was one such Frau. She had joined the staff of Ravensbrück in April 1939 and worked as an Aufseherin in the women's camp before being promoted to Oberaufseherin. The Holocaust has generally been seen as a crime perpetrated by men. Erna Petri - callous dispatcher of those six Jewish boys - was one such Frau.

The sentence of this court is that you suffer death by being hanged. Also in Poland was Vera Wohlauf, whose husband Julius commanded a police battalion ordered in 1942 to round up 11,000 Jewish inhabitants of a small town for transportation to Treblinka for liquidation.

Despite international protests, Hermann was sent to the guillotine on 20 June 1938.

Obituary of Liselotte Podleski

liselotte meier

Elizabeth Becker was not quite 23 years old and had been born locally on the 20th of July 1923 at Nowy Staw near Danzig. Saschek, often mentioned in the documents, but about whom no further information could be found, worked in the office of the accused Werner from January 1942. On Saturday the 8th of December the appeals of the others were rejected and the condemned were transferred to Hameln jail the following day to await execution, being housed in a row of tiny cells along a corridor with the execution chamber at its end. For the ordinary German women serving as female concentration camp guards, the Milgram study on obedience to authority would be one paradigm to consider. I will never forget this. That Jews were the enemy and their annihilation the answer was taken for granted by millions of women who would later deny knowing what was going on under their noses. This schizophrenic combination of warm-hearted mother one minute and cold-blooded killer the next is an enigma and one that — now revealed in a new book based on years of trawling through remote archives — puts a crueller than ever spin on the Third Reich.

But she was the exception. She showed almost all her bust, she almost exposed her breasts for the photograph. One observer noted that Altvater often lured children with sweets. Then she stopped, picked one up, took it to the balcony and threw the child to the pavement three floors below. Elisabeth Volkenrath was steady but looked nervous and Juana Borman limped down the corridor looking old and haggard.

He had, at times, 50 or more Jews under him as forced labor. Liselotte, known by many as Lisa, immigrated to Canada in December of 1950 and lived in Pain Court for most of her life. Vol 11 p 1596 f, 1601 The fellow accused Werner also alleges that Windisch beat and kicked Jews. Thirteen million women were actively engaged in the Nazi Party. Altvater would be brought to trial, charged with the murder of 9000 Jews but, despite survivors' testimonies and documentation, she was acquitted. This girl talked to me a little. The accused comprised of 16 men and 16 women, including Josef Kramer, Belsen's commandant, plus 12 former prisoners seven men and five women.
