Second trial ends

Session ended at 9:45 pm.


Editor’s note: This was the official time as recorded by the court clerk. But according to five of the individuals who were there and bore witness postwar to the trial, Judge Freisler did not even return to the courtroom to hand down the verdict until 10:30 p.m. Falk Harnack placed Freisler’s return as even later than that, while Susanne Hirzel noted it could have resumed as early as 10 p.m.
