Yad Vashem

Dr. Gruenewald was appointed in 1948 as the mayor of Wuerzburg, but he was dismissed in 1949 after accusations surfaced regarding his Nazi past and his activities in the General Government in occupied Poland. A denazification court in Ansbach classified him after an investigation as a “Fellow Traveler” and no further legal actions were taken against him. He continued his political career in West Germany.
