The Trial of the Kaiser

William A. Schabas

Oxford University Press

The Kaiser did not seem overly concerned about trial and there is no evidence he made any preparations for his defence. With Dutch Government approval, he bought a permanent residence in Doorn, near Utrecht, and proceeded to renovate the place.r The Pope took the initiative to campaign against trial of the Kaiser, and European royalty joined in a variety of initiatives to protect their ‘cousin’. Dutch public opinion appeared to harden in favour of refusing any surrender of the Kaiser. Then, at the end of the year, incriminating documents known as the Kautsky papers were published in Germany showing the Kaiser’s belligerence during the fateful weeks of July 1914.
