Robert Ley was a Nazi politician and head of the German Labour Front from 1933 to 1945. He committed suicide while awaiting trial at Nuremberg.<br />
<br />
A unique album of mugshots and signatures that helped bring scores of Nazi war criminals to justice has been unearthed more than 70 years later.<br />
<br />
The gallery that is like a Who's Who of Hitler's henchmen involved in the Holocaust was assembled by an Allied intelligence officer whose job was to interrogate the monsters.<br />
<br />
A vital part of the questioning was to get them to provide an authentic signature to compare it with handwriting of Nazi officials who signed off orders for war atrocities.<br />
<br />
The album is being sold at C&T Auctioneers of Ashford, Kent, on September 7.
