Note 011

11 The instrumental function of all law was expressed with singular exactitude when it was publicly asserted that the duty of the People's Courts was 'not to dispense justice but to destroy the opponents of National Socialism'; see Bracher, Sauer and Schulz, Die nationalsozialistische Machtergreifung. Occasional references to criminal law as 'combat law' were made by Roland Freisler; see ibid.
