Stuttgart, Germany, January, 1947: Siegfried Kabus, with arms folded in the foreground, and other pro-Nazi defendants sit in a military government courtroom during their trial on charges that they bombed three German denazification courts and the Stuttgart military police headquarters. Ringleader Kabus — a former SS officer described by one witness as the would-be führer of a planned Nazi government — told the court Adolf Hitler was alive, but partially paralyzed, in Spain. Kabus was found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging (but was released in 1953); others were given prison sentences.
