Roland Freisler and Dr. Otto Thierack

Otto-Georg Thierack is born. Thierack will become an important jurist in the Nazi Party, eventually rising to lead the Volksgericht.

This "People's Court" will be given authority over political crimes, allowing the Nazis to create a veneer of legitimacy to their suppression of political dissent and execution of politically undesirable elements from society.

Among their many victims will be Hans Scholl, his sister Sophie Scholl, and other members of the White Rose resistance movement in Munich.
