Inside Nuremberg Prison: Hitler’s Henchmen Behind Bars & the German Jew

By Helen Fry

This is the extraordinary true story of Howard Triest, the only German Jewish interpreter to work with the psychiatrists in Nuremberg Prison during the famous post-war trial.

At the end of World War II, twenty-two surviving members of Hitler’s government were behind bars in Nuremberg Prison awaiting trial for their part in the Holocaust and other crimes that the Nazi’s committed. Munich-born Howard Triest had fled Nazi Germany on the eve of war. Four years later he landed on Omaha Beach with invading American forces and served on the frontline all the way to the invasion of Germany. 

As he entered the country of his birth, he felt euphoric. But there was a special, painful task ahead for the man whom the Nazis once wanted to kill, and whose family had disappeared in 1942…

Every day for twelve months, Howard walked into the prison cells and sat within inches of Hitler’s henchmen; the men who sent his parents to the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
