70 years ago on this date, September 8, 1947, Brigadeführer Kurt Eberhard, committed suicide in prison custody. I will post information about him from Wikipedia.
Kurt Eberhard (born September 12, 1874 in Rottweil - died September 8, 1947 in Stuttgart) was a German officer. He rose to the rank of Brigadeführer of the SS and in the German army. During World War II Eberhard was given the command over the occupied city of Kiev in Ukraine. He was involved in planning and supervising the Babi Yar massacres during which from 100,000 to 150,000 people were murdered. He was captured by US authorities after the end of World War II, in November 1945, and kept in captivity in Stuttgart. He committed suicide on September 8, 1947.
