Rosenberg, Alfred


Born Jan. 12, 1893, in Tallinn; died Oct. 16, 1946, in Nuremberg. One of the main war criminals of fascist Germany.

In 1923, Rosenberg became editor in chief of the central organ of the Nazi party, Völkischer Beobachter. In The Myth of the Twentieth Century (1930), he published a “substantiation” of the racist views and expansionist foreign policy program of German fascism. In 1933 he became head of the foreign policy department of the National Socialist Party. In July 1941, Rosenberg became minister of the occupied Eastern territories. He was one of the organizers of the mass murders and lootings that were conducted by the German administration in Poland, the USSR, and the other countries temporarily captured by the fascist German troops. Rosenberg was executed by verdict of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.
