  BBC - h2g2 - SS-Hauptscharfuhrer Konrad Morgen : The Bloodhound Judge
Morgen was born in 1910 in Frankfurt-am-Main and was the son of a German railroad conductor.
Not one to be put off by red tape, Morgen dutifully took the evidence to the Reichsfuhrer's office and sneaked it to Himmler's desk by using a cautiously worded telegram to Himmler outlining the case and with the help of a sympathetic member of Himmler's staff.
Morgen pounced on what he then believed to be a localised crime wave involving and evidenced by gas chambers, incineration ovens and mass graves.

MORGEN: At the order of the Reichsfuehrer SS, and due to my special abilities in criminology, I was detailed by the Main Office SS Courts to the Reich Criminal Police Department in Berlin, which was equivalent to a transfer.
MORGEN: For the guards of the concentration camps, the SS and Police courts were competent; that is, in each case the local court in whose district the concentration camp was located.
MORGEN: I have just pointed out that I was not a mere visitor to a concentration camp but I had settled down there for a long residence, I might almost say I established myself there.

 The Myth of the Six Million -- The Actual Character of the SS
Morgen made a statement at Nuremberg on July 13, 1946, which was based on reports he had heard since the war, to the effect that a secret extermination campaign might have been in progress without his knowledge, but later he retracted this statement.
Konrad Morgen presented a special affidavit denying that he had ever intended to implicate Pohl in any possible attempt to exterminate Jews.
In the notorious Morgen trial prosecution of Commander Koch of Buchenwald, to which the German public was invited, both Pohl and Schmidt were for the conviction and execution of Koch, whereas Morgen was content with the indefinite adjournment of the trial and the retirement of Koch.

The star witness for the defense in the Buchenwald case was SS officer Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen, the special court judge who had convicted Ilse's husband, Commandant Karl Otto Koch, and sentenced him to the death penalty in 1943.
Georg Konrad Morgen was born in Frankfurt in 1910.
Morgen replied that, while she undoubtedly was guilty of many crimes, she was truly innocent of this charge.

 The Judge
Morgen had earlier obtained the execution of the commandant of Buchenwald on similar charges.
Morgen had Grabner arrested and brought back to Berlin for questioning; he was ultimately sentenced by Nazi justice to twelve years in prison for crimes including some of the killings which had taken place at the "Black Wall" between Block 10 and Block 11.
In the complicated web of SS regulations as applied by Morgen, the shooting of prisoners at the Black Wall was illegal, while their murder inside Block 11 by phenol injection was perfectly legal, as were the gas chambers.

 Axis History Forum :: View topic - Who was in charge of the Holocaust?
MORGEN: To a great extent the horrible conditions at times prevailing in some concentration camps did not arise from deliberate planning, but developed from circumstances which in my opinion must be called force majeure, that is to say, evils for which the local camp leaders were not responsible.
MORGEN: May I say one more sentence on that subject: the investigating commission of the Reich Criminal Police Department at Auschwitz was quartered in wooden hutments, and after it had worked with success for some time, unknown persons at night destroyed the hutments by fire with all the documents.
MORGEN: As I have already said, Hoess was simultaneously commander of Auschwitz and Monowitz; he is to be considered the chief of the personnel, aside from the one leader of the Monowitz troops.

For example, in 1943 SS Judge Konrad Morgen of the Haupt Amt Gericht (SS-HAG) was assigned to investigate and prosecute brutality at Buchenwald.
Morgen was so successful in correcting conditions there that Himmler gave him an expanded staff and unlimited investigative authority in the camps.
Morgen's entire investigation of Goeth was reduced to a scene in which fleeting reference is made to Goeth having his books "audited." If you blinked, you missed it.

 Waldemar Hoven - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was also responsible for the lethal injections of aconitine given to several imprisoned former SS officers who were potential witnesses in an investigation against Ilse Koch, with whom Hoven was rumoured to be having an affair.
Hoven was then put on trial by the SS, and unlikely rumors suggest that the presiding SS judge Konrad Morgen proved Hoven's guilt by feeding aconitine to Russian prisoners of war who then died of the same symptoms as the SS officers.
He was convicted and sentenced to death, though he only spent 18 months in captivity at Buchenwald before being pardoned - given the Nazi shortage of doctors.

 Axis History Forum :: View topic - Question About DR Konrad Morgen
The investigation by SS judge Konrad Morgen was initially aimed at corruption within the concentration camps, and particular the stealing of gold confiscated from prisoners, which according to German law was state property.
However, once the investigation started, Morgen found out that a lot of unauthorised killing was going on at the camps, that is to say, killing that had not been ordered by the German Government.
Morgen charged Maximilian Grabner, the head of the "camp Gestapo" at Auschwitz, with mass murder for the above sorts of offences.

353-356 The temporary clean-up which Konrad Morgen, the SS Judge, was allowed to conduct among the SS liquidators was a good illustration of Himmler's Jekyll-and-Hyde character: the Reichsfuehrer's dual personality was suddenly exposed -- the lower-middle-class citizen with his strict moral upbringing clashed with the aotomaton, the fanatical agent of the Fuehrer's commands.
^187 Morgen, being an Oberstrurmfuehrer in the Waffen SS, was allotted the job and went to Weimar where he installed himself in the Elephant Hotel and initiated unobtrusive investigations.
From corruption the case developed into one of multiple murder, for Morgen discovered that Koch had not only been flmailing rich Jews who had landed in his concentration camp after the 1938 Kristallnacht, but had also been causing awkward witnesses among the prisoners to disappear.

Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen had investigated the human lamp shade accusation, but had thrown this charge out of his court case for lack of evidence.

It would have been most interesting if Taylor had elaborated on this crucial issue of knowledge of the exterminations and possibilities of opposing them, since there was much germane testimony, e.g.
on Hitler's Order Number One concerning secrecy on State affairs 2 and on the discovery by SS judge Georg Konrad Morgen of the killings at Lublin/Maidanek, which prompted him to seek an indictment against Adolf Eichmann 3.
With regard to the defence of the High Command of the Wehrmacht, this reviewer disagrees with Taylor's statement that "as for the asserted preservation of the laws of war by the German Army, [defence counsel] Laternser and his witnesses gave no evidence in support of their claim" (p.
