The Nazi Interrogator Who Killed Them With Kindness

By Kent Cubbage

Of the millions that were killed by German hands during World War II, countless thousands were prisoners of war. Often massive numbers of prisoners were killed at a time in acts of retaliation for the killing of German soldiers. Over the decades, the image of the sadistic Nazi interrogator has become commonplace. His father, Hans Hermann Scharff, was a highly decorated soldier in the East Prussian Army who was killed during The Great War. During the remainder of the war, Scharff interrogated all manner of famous, high ranking pilots.
