B'nai B'rith prosecutor at the Dachau & other trials

German-born Jew Fred Baer née Fredrich Beer aka Frederick K. Baer emigrated to the United States in 1920 when aged 10. He did not serve in WWII but once Germany surrendered, in his capacity as an lawyer, he travelled to Europe to act as a prosecutor in the war crimes trials. He participated in the Hadamar trial, IMT, Tesch trial, and numerous Dachau trials. He was also the president of his local branch (South Bend, Indiana) of B'nai B'rith. Baer mentions his brother, also a lawyer, who worked for B'nai B'rith for sixty years, and was supposedly the man who forced Yale, Harvard, plus numerous Law schools, to abolish their quotas for Jewish students (hear that story here).
