Lot 41. Van der Lubbe at Reichstag Arsoners’ Trial Leipzig, 22 September 1933 Vintage silver print, 180×130 mm, pencil, pen: « Borgé », mimeographed caption, verso. Still a difficult subject in Europe history. In 1967, a court in West Berlin allowed the 1933 conviction to stand, but overturned the death sentence and posthumously changed Van der Lubbe’s sentence to eight years in prison. In 1980, another court overturned the verdict, but was overruled. In 1981, a West German court posthumously overturned Van der Lubbe’s 1933 conviction and found him not guilty by reason of insanity. This ruling was overturned. However, in January 2008, he was pardoned under a 1998 law for the crime on the grounds that anyone convicted under Nazi Germany is officially not guilty.
Estimate EUR 600/800, starting price EUR 200
