Erich Priebke (29 July 1913, Henningdorf, Prussia, German Empire – 11 October 2013, Rome) was a German Hauptsturmführer in the Waffen SS.[In 1996 he was convicted of war crimes in Italy, for participating in the massacre at the Ardeatine caves in rome on March 1944. A number of 335 Italian civilians were killed in retaliation after a partisan attack had killed 33 German soldiers. Priebke was one of those held responsible for this mass execution. After the defeat of Germany, he received help to flee to Argentina, where he lived for over 50 years. In 1994 Priebke felt he could now talk about the incident. This led to his extradition to Italy and a trial which would last more than four years. Priebke was arrested for life imprisonment and died today in Rome, Italy.
