Object | Accession Number: 1991.182.26

Four Storm Troop bullies in 1932 haouled an enemy of the Nazis out of his house in Beuthen, Silesia, and stomped him to death. They were sentenced to death and while they were awaiting execution, Hitler sent them congratulations. When he became Chancellor, they were pardoned. One or two of them got very good jobs in the Nazi party. In that year, political murders jumped from eight a month to 19 a month in June, went to 86 a month in July.
