Hermine Braunsteiner

"My wife sir, wouldn't hurt a fly"

On August 7, 1973, 54-year-old Hermine Braunsteiner-Ryan, an American citizen since 1963, was extradited to West Germany where she was to stand trial over her alleged role in Nazi war crimes. Her American-born husband refused to believe his wife was capable of such horrendous crimes, and firmly suspected it was a case of mistaken identity. However, her accusers believed Braunsteiner was the female SS guard whom the inmates at one of the most notorious death camps referred to as the “Mare of Majdanek”. This guard would murder inmates indiscriminately, by whipping or stomping them to death, and was responsible for selecting women and children to be sent to the gas chambers. She received a life sentence at her trial after it was determined that she was responsible for the deaths of numerous men, women and children in some of the Third Reich’s most notorious camps.
