TWO historians have unveiled a Blue Plaque in Mere on the former home of Wolfe Frank, Chief Interpreter at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals.

The Blue Plaque was unveiled on Friday (October 1) after being fixed to the façade of his former home at The Malt House in Castle Street.

The plaque was awarded by the Salisbury Civic Society. It is the first the Society has

awarded outside the City of Salisbury area.

Mr Hooley is the author of two books on the life, times and achievements of Wolfe, and Mr Dilliway is a close friend to whom Wolfe bequeathed his memoirs upon which Mr Hooley’s books are based.

The lunchtime ceremony was attended by Mr and Mrs Chalk, the owners of The Malt House; Mr Frank’s former wife Ursula Gilbert, their children Geraldine and Valentine,

their grandchildren and other family members, some of whom had travelled from France for the special event.

Mr Hooley said: "Exactly 75 years ago today, at about this time – in what he described as being the most tense hour of his life – a world-wide radio audience of 400 million listened as Wolfe announced to the most prominent leaders of Nazi Germany, the sentences imposed upon them by the International Military Tribunal, following which the world’s media dubbed him

‘The Voice of Doom’."
