Pencil sketch of a Nazi by Dr K Prabhakar Rao


Richard Hermann Hildebrandt (13 May 1897, Worms – 10 March 1952, Warsaw) was a politician in Nazi Germany, member of the Reichstag, and an SS-Obergruppenführer. From 1943 until his capture in 1945, he led the SS-Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt or RuSHA (SS Race and Settlement Main Office). He was convicted in the phase of the Nuremberg trials known as the RuSHA Trial, for measures put into force in the furtherance of the "germanization" component of the Generalplan Ost program in the Danzig-West Prussia area. This involved the resettlement of Germans in the Nazi occupied territory after ejecting the native families from those lands. As RuSHA chief, he was also responsible for conducting the official Race test on the population of the occupied territories for racial selection. He was captured in 1945 by allies and was tried at Nuremberg by US military tribunal after WWII and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He was handed over to polish authorities for further trial where he was found guilty. And hanged in1952
