John Amery

John Amery

John Amery, a staunch fascist, was hanged at Wandsworth, for treason.

He helped both Hitler and Mussolini spread their propaganda during the Second World War.

Judge Humphreys presiding damningly indicted the part-Jewish 33-year-old:

‘You now stand a self-confessed traitor to your King and country, and you have forfeited your right to live’.
