"The clearest way to show what the rule of law
means to us in everyday life is to recall what has
happened when there is no rule of law."
– Dwight D. Eisenhower
Munich lawyer Dr. Michael Siegel (1882-1979) had complained to Munich Police Headquarters in early April 1933, when one of his clients was taken into 'protective custody'. He had the legs of his trousers cut off and was led through Munich's inner city streets barefoot with a board around his neck that read: "I will never complain to the police again!"
Fritz Glaser, a lawyer in the city Dresden, was prohibited to practice
due to his faith and
various clients he represented.
After 1945 Glaser was re-admitted as a lawyer, but was ostracized from society when he represented the interests of a Nazi judge.
