Jürgen Stroop in custody for war crimes

Jürgen Stroop, September 26, 1895 - March 6, 1952, was an SS-Gruppenführer und Generalleutnant der Waffen-SS und Polizei, who served as the SS and Police Leader of the Poland-Warsaw area during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. As such, he was responsible for crushing the rebellion and restoring order in the ghetto; an action which cost the lives of thousands of innocent victims. After the close of the Second World War, Stroop was found guilty of war crimes and executed by the Polish authorities in 1952.


In the 2001 film Uprising, Jürgen Stroop is depicted by actor Jon Voight. In the film The Eagle Has Landed (1976), Jürgen Stroop is portrayed by German actor Joachim Hansen, although the character is simply referred to as "Herr Gruppenführer" and not by Stroop's actual name.
