He was also given 125000 marks as compensation. After release , he purchased huge property and lived a wealthy man and died later at the age of 81 years. it is very strange that a criminal who was involved in thousands of murders was let off with small jail term and should have been hanged at gallows immediately after the war. it is believed that he was spared due to His service at v2rocket production and rocket launching in the final stages of war. Surely Americans must have spared him and gained valuable information On V2 rockets.justice was not fair thus. The criminal who was to hang at gallows was allowed to live so long and was also made wealthy by paying him huge sum of money by the govt. How unfair it was. All is fair in love and war.
