Description: Note with personal ink signature "Walter Buch. Oberster Richter der NSDAP - 9.8.45". Walter Buch was interned and interrogated at Camp Ashcan/Bad Mondorf. During the Nuremberg Trials he was only heard as a witness. However, in his denazification tribunal in Garmisch (August 1948), he was classified as chief culprit and sentenced to five years' work in a labour camp and deprivation of his property. The appeal proceedings in July 1949 confirmed the sentence, but reduced the imprisonment to 3 1/2 years. Shortly afterwards Buch committed suicide. An interesting and rare autograph, presumably for one of the American warders in Camp Ashcan to whom Buch - especially through the impression of his official title - still seemed to be of great importance.
