Heinrich Lübke - One of Hitler's Men (1965)

This article explores the Nazi past of Heinrich Lübke (1894-1972), the second President of the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) from 1959 to 1969. During the Nazi era Lübke was responsible for the transferring of V-weapon construction facilities to secret locations underground. To that end, Lübke personally requested several hundred inmates from the Buchenwald concentration camp, many of whom died from the cruel working conditions below ground, and the miserable treatment in Lübke's "private concentration camp."
