Albert Speer was a close confidant of Hitler, and the Third Reich's most celebrated architect. Later promoted by the Nazi leader as minister for armaments, Speer was instrumental in the exploitation of slave labor for the benefit of the German war effort. Tried at Nuremberg for war crimes, he escaped the hangman's noose by denying any knowledge of Nazi extermination plans and of the Holocaust. Speer served 20 years in prison and lived out the rest of his life in considerable comfort. But it later emerged that he was fully aware of Hitler's plans and of what happened to the Jews.
