German Diplomat. After holding numerous diplomatic posts, he served as foreign minister under chancellors Franz von Papen and Kurt von Schleicher. A supporter of Adolf Hitler's foreign policy, Neurath remained in office after Hitler took over the government in 1933. In 1938, he was dismissed in favor of Joachim von Ribbentrop. Following the German occupation of Czechosolvakia in 1939, Neurath was appointed the protector of Bohemia and Moravia; however, he was considered too lenient in his treatment of the Czechs and was replaced by Reinhard Heydrich in 1941. At the Nuremberg war-crimes trial in 1946 Neurath was sentenced to imprisonment for 15 years. In 1954 he was released because of illness and he passed away two years later.
