Joachim von Ribbentrop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ulrich Friedrich Wilhelm Joachim von Ribbentrop (1893-1946) was Foreign Minister of the German Reich from 1938 until 1945. Arrested in June 1945, he was tried at the Nuremberg Trials and convicted of war crimes for his role in starting World War II and enabling the Holocaust. On 16 October 1946 he became, due to Hermann Göring's suicide moments before, the first of those sentenced to death to be hanged.
