Didn't he die in 1987, rather than 1982?

I have a question for the author of this article. It says "He was captured and imprisoned and was charged with war crimes but was released for lack of evidence". If this is true, how can you say " In 1938, he became responsible for the seizing of Jewish businesses for questions about mixed marriages between Gentile and Jewish Germans and general questions about occupation of foreign states". It doesn't make any sense. ^^^

Someone posted this on the Article page. Moving it here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lasati (talkcontribs) 12:06, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Because seizing businesses within Germany is not a 'war crime' - and due to the strict guidelines imposed on the Nuremberg trials, documents against him were lacking for such. He should have been tried and convicted for his wrongdoings in German post-war courts, but like so many others, he escaped justice (although thousands did not.) Personally, I think he should have got life at least for Wannsee participation, but the Allied Council had not thought that through well at the time.

Dienstleiter is wrong[edit]

The title of the image says the the insignia is Dienstleiter, but in fact it is Befehlsleiter! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:54, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
