What he did..

Ernst Kaltenbrunner was one of the most feared men, an is part of the reason for extermination camps. He believed that there was really no need for any other race but his own. He was seen as a "mini" Hilter through the civilians eyes. Kaltenbrunner was hung for his crimes on October 16th 1946 in Nuremberg.

Reflection:

I feel as if the punishment fit the crime extremely well because it's basically like a life for a life. Now how does that make me any better than them? It really doesn't, but the Nazi Germans killed many people. I feel that the Nazi Germans should all be punished based on what they did, but as one they should have been at least imprisioned for life. I feel as if the president should have to deal with what happens to them after they are imprisioned.
