Otto-Georg Thierack, later president of the Volksgericht (People's Court) and eventually also Reich Minster of Justice, is appointed the Minister of Justice in Saxony.

Thierack is expected to "Nazify" Saxony's justice system and thus demonstrate how a justice system can be brought into line with the Nazi agenda.
