Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A War Crimes Commission was set up shortly after the war. It returned indictments against twenty-four Nazis, twenty-one of whom later stood trial before the International Military Tribunal in Nuremburg. Of the twenty-one defendants at Nuremburg three were acquitted, seven drew prison sentences, and eleven were sentenced to be hanged.
