A good executioner

Добрый палач

Let me remind you that today is the anniversary of the Nuremberg trials

John woods was a good executioner. When the victim hung in the air, he grabbed her by the legs and hung with it, reducing the suffering of swinging. But this, in his native Texas, where he executed more than three hundred people.On the night of October 16, 1946, the woods receded from its principles.

The Nuremberg prison, which contained the Nazis, was located in the American zone, so that the executioner was also provided by the US government. In this case, they found American Sergeant John woods. In this picture he demonstrates his “know-how” legendary mesh with 13 nodes.

The first on the scaffold he had to climb Goering, Ribbentrop behind him, but two hours before the execution Reichsmarschall was suicide by taking potassium cyanide capsule that (one of the possible versions) to him at the last meeting in prison, gave his wife one last kiss.

Executed after midnight in the gymnasium of the Nuremberg prison. Gallows woods was built in just a day: just before the soldiers even played in the hall of basketball. The idea seemed good: three gallows, replacement ropes, body bags and, most importantly, hatches in the platforms under the feet of the culprits, they just had to fall when hanging.

The whole ordeal took no more than three hours, including the last word and the conversation with the priest. Sam woods then proudly reminisced about that day:

“Ten men in 103 minutes. This is a quick job.”But minus (or plus?) was that woods hastily badly calculated, the size of the hatches, making them very small. Falling inside the gallows, executed touched the edge of the hatch with his head and died, well, not immediately… Ribbentrop wheezed in a loop for 10 minutes, yodel — 18, Keitel — 24.

After the execution, the representatives of all the allied powers had examined the bodies and signed the death certificates, and the journalists photographed a body in clothes and without. Then executed immersed in fir coffins, sealed and under the strengthened escort was transported to the crematorium of the East cemetery of Munich. The evening of October 18, mixed the ashes of criminals were emptied in Isartor channel from the bridge Marieclaude.

The Nuremberg executioner John woods (John C. Woods) died 21 Jul 1950. According to legend, from electric shock when testing the electric chair of his own design. Everything in life is more prosaic: he died of shock, but when repairing the electrical wiring in your own home.
