ROBERT LEY (1890 - 1945) Nazi leader and ardent anti-Semite who as head of the Labor Front ruthlessly enforced slave labor policies. He committed suicide in his jail cell at Nuremburg while awaiting trial. Fine content and association T.L.S. on official letterhead, 2pp. large 4to., Berlin, Jan. 22, 1940 to HANS LAMMERS (1879-1962) Minister and Chief of the Reich Chancellory, ordered arrested by Hitler in the final days, and ultimately sentenced to twenty years imprisonment for war crimes. In an angry diatribe, Ley writes: "...Reichs Leader [Alfred] Rosenberg has sent me a copy of a letter to you...in which he expresses the fact that my objections to the draft on the ideological education were irrelevant since he had never intended to have my training at the NSDAP's primary school of education...I welcome the fact that the powers of Reichs Leader Rosenberg, who had hitherto been responsible for supervising the education of the party, have now been transferred to the state and to the Wehrmacht...". Docketed by Lammers, file holes and a paperclip stain, folds, still very good.
