(1895 - 1952) SS and Police Leader of the Poland-Warsaw area. It was Stroop who, during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, ordered its suppression costing the lives of tens of thousands. As his forces were forced back by heavy resistance, he ordered the entire Ghetto burned down, building by building, and the killing or deportation to extermination camps all of its inhabitants. Afterwards, in an elaborately prepared report to Himmler, now referred to as "The Stroop Report", he boasted that "the Warsaw Ghetto is no more". This report would later be used as evidence at the Nuremberg Trials. Tried and executed by the Poles in 1952. Rare signed presentation book: "Bauernturm als Seger deutschen Blutes" ("Farming As the Hero of German Blood") (Goslar: Blut und Boden Verlag, 1935. Approx. 80pp. 8vo. in beige cloth with brown titles, some foxing to covers and first few pages. A collection of full-page reproductions of sketches by artist WILHELM WILLRICH depicting the faces of various farmers from regions throughout Germany. Stroop signs a full-page presentation as Waffen-SS Standartenfuhrer, 23 SS-Standarte, March 1, 1938 on the front flyleaf, which is slightly foxed, largely at margins. Overall very good. Stroop is rare in any form, especially so in signed books.
