Wilhelm Frick

Hitler was undoubtedly a genius but he lacked self-control. He recognized no limits. Otherwise the thousand-year Reich would have lasted more than twelve years.

Dr. Wilhelm Frick (March 12, 1877October 16, 1946) was a prominent Nazi official. He was appointed Minister of the Interior and of Education for Thuringia in 1930. He was then appointed to the ceremonial post of Protector of Bohemia and Moravia. He was executed for war crimes after the end of World War II.

  • I am skeptical about preventing wars. I doubt if they can be prevented. There will always be wars. Judging by past experiences, working for peace now would be as ineffective as ever. It's a law of nature.

About FrickEdit

  • Personally, he is not particularly depressed, because of the "nature of life, the laws of nature, the ways of war."
    • Leon Goldensohn, March 10, 1946
  • A minister of interior who knew not even what went on in the interior of his own office, much less the interior of his own department, and nothing at all about the interior of Germany.
    • Robert H. Jackson
  • Frick, the ruthless organizer, helped the party to seize power, supervised the police agencies to insure that it stayed in power, and chained the economy of Bohemia and Moravia to the German war machine.
    • Robert H. Jackson
