Josef Pfitzner was born in Petrovice Bruntál District, Austrian Silesia He was a German historian and politician and was Professor of medieval and Eastern European history at the German University of Prague Early on, he was attracted to Nazism and belonged to the branch of Austrian National Socialism He held the rank of Standartenführer in the SA In 1939, he became the German deputy mayor of Prague and held this office until May 1945 Pfitzner was publicly executed in Prague after World War II within three hours of being convicted for speaking in favour of the Nazis, taking part in Nazi organisations, and defrauding Prague city in financial deals with the Germans He was hanged in public before up to 50,000 spectatorscitation needed


Pfitzner took a special interest in the Sudeten German past and published Volkstumsschutz und Nationale Bewegung Josef Pfitzner wrote that the National Socialism of Germany was "the synthesis of the two great dynamic powers of the century, of the socialist and national idea"1 This specific brand of German socialism was perfected in the German borderlands of Austria and especially in the Sudetenland before it came to Germany His views on the essentially German character of Bohemia and Moravia influenced Reinhard Heydrich during his time as Reich Protector; see R Gerwarth, Hitler's Hangman: the life of Heydrich 2011, p 266 with n 220 However, it was Heydrich's influence that contained Pfitzner's further career; the Protector considered the deputy mayor - a man of words rather than deeds - to be unsuitable for a responsible position in the times of struggle
