Nat Gutman, the porter, Warsaw 1935–1938 From A Vanished World, 1983 After working as a bank cashier for six years, Nat Gutman was dismissed because he was a Jew. He became a porter.

Commander Otto Ohlendorf, executed in 1951 for having headed an Einsatzgruppe Task force responsible for killing 90,000 people --mostly Jews -- shot by his command. His defense was that he was following orders by the leaders of the state. Though he testified that he personally had scruples against the liquidation orders, yet he also said he felt duty-bound to obey the liquidation orders. He also testified that any soldier refusing to obey the orders faced court martial.
