Nazis arrest duke for not voting

November 13, 1933

Nazis "scouting squadrons" are in the process of rounding up "slothful voters," today when they discovered the name of Duke Philipp Albrecht of Württemberg, son of the late king, who apparently "had not been checked off the polling list as having voted."

The New York Times reports that a man was sent to remind Duke Philipp of  his "omission," and found him in a "recalcitrant mood."   The duke, 40, was taken into custody by a Nazi storm trooper, and is being held until he can "obtain intervention."

Uh oh. What happened to him afterwards? Did he make nice with the regime or did he wind up being punished as an enemy by them?
