Welcome to Retroville! It's 1946!
The International Military Tribunal finished its work and handed down its verdicts on October 1, 1946, ironically, on the Jewish Day of Atonement. Certainly, if Hitler had not committed suicide just before the end of the war, his would have been the most important part of the trial. Of course, we'll never know how the Tribunal would have dealt with him since they never had the chance. Many believe that a simple death sentence would never have been enough.
Defendants' gallery at the Nuremberg Trial
Of the 22 defendants, 11 were given the death penalty, 3 were acquitted, 3 were given life imprisonment, and 4 were given imprisonment ranging from 10 to 20 years. Those sentenced to death were hanged at Spandau Prison on October 6, 1946. Those acquitted were placed in the inept denazification program following the trial. Those who received prison sentences were sent to Spandau Prison.
