Nuremberg - Day 56 von Paulus

He had been Commander-in-Chief of the German 6th Army in the battle of Stalingrad in late 1942 and early 1943. Eventually he surrendered. Many of the defendants were furious that von Paulus was about to testify as a prosecution witness. The testimony was directed by Russian Chief Prosecutor Roman Rudenko. Von Paulus tesified in German about the invasion of the Soviet Union and the invasion of Romania, Hungary and Finland. Further he identified the Nazi hiearchy. The German defense team through Dr. Laternser prevailed upon the Tribunal to delay cross examination to gather more information. For further information see www.roberthjackson.org
