Would you be able to find information on a few female nazis? All I was able to find out about these women was their trial sentences. Therese Brandel or Brandl, Hildegard Lachert, Ewa Paradies, Emma Zimmer , Elisabeth Lupka, Elsa Drexler and Gerda Steinhoff. I would really appreciate it if you could find some info. Thank you for your time.
You can read about the execution of three female Nazis: Irma Grese, Elisabeth Volkenrath, and Juana Bormann, in a partial transcription of
Executioner: Pierrepoint Albert Pierrepoint 1974, George C. Harrap & Co.Ltd.
