Programmed to Chill

27 - Krupp Steel pt. 10, Alfried Krupp, or, "We were no traitors!"

from Programmed to Chill | Published 11/14/2021

Today's all about the Nuremberg trials - Krupp evading the first tier of them, then getting their own trials a year later. We talk about their crimes, the weirdness of the trial, especially the curious handling of it by US forces. At the trial, Krupp executives revealed that they were, in fact, guilty of treason, which is pretty funny. Then we talk about the Korean War, and Alfried Krupp's pardon at the hands of an appeals board appointed by John J. McCloy. McCloy's career is examined, and we discuss why Krupp was pardoned.
