Ernst Werner Techow (12 October 1901 – 9 May 1945) was a German right-wing assassin. In 1922, he took part in the assassination of the Foreign Minister of Germany Walther Rathenau. After his release from prison Techow initially joined the Nazi party, but soon fell out with the movement and dropped into obscurity. Late in World War II he joined the Volkssturm. He was killed after being captured by the Soviet Red Army near Dresden on May 9, 1945. Legend has it that Techow changed his political beliefs after his release from prison, joined the French Foreign Legion under the name of "Tessier" and later embarked on helping Jews escape from occupied France. This completely unfounded narrative can be traced back to hearsay that American journalist George W. Herald had turned into a story for Har

  • Ernst Werner Techow (* 12. Oktober 1901 in Berlin; † 9. Mai 1945 in Königsbrück) war ein deutscher Redakteur, Fotograf und Angestellter. Er gehörte während der Weimarer Republik der rechtsextremen bzw. rechtsterroristischen Organisation Consul (O.C.) an und steuerte beim Attentat auf Walther Rathenau am 24. Juni 1922 den Wagen, aus dem heraus seine Mittäter Hermann Fischer und Erwin Kern den Reichsaußenminister töteten. Techow blieb nach seiner Haftentlassung in Deutschland und verschwand weitgehend in der Anonymität. Um ihn rankt sich die Legende, er habe während des Zweiten Weltkrieges als Hauptmann der Légion étrangère mehrere Hundert Juden vor der Verfolgung gerettet. (de)
