Entry for September 19, 2006

This day in history 1945-- Nazi propagandist William Joyce, known as Lord Haw-Haw, was sentenced to death by a British court. William Joyce and his wife Margaret broadcast propaganda for German radio stations during WWII. William was hung for treason while his wife was not prosecuted. An article about Margaret is found on a CNN web page at http://archives.cnn.com/2000/WORLD/europe/UK/11/09/london.hawhaw/
