Hanging of Spies

Hanging of spies the austrian way (WW1). The person in the middle is a woman.

The whole setup is a bit primitive (to say the least). And their faces are covered after the hanging, not before.

Re: Hanging of Spies

Why the cross member on the pole? It almost looks like a crucifix.

Nice photos though

I'm not sure. The method is called "polehanging" and was used for executions in the old doublemonarchy of Austria-Hungary (and maybe also later - I'm not sure).

The crossbeam isn't nescessary, but I guess it's there so it is easier to fasten the rope. But I'm almost sure that I've seen pics of poles without it.

Nice pole hangings. Those Austrians are sooooo civilized.
