Julius Ritter
Julius Ritter (1892-1943) was an SS colonel (Standartenführer) who supervised in France the Service du travail obligatoire (STO), which sent tens of thousands of French workers to Germany to support Nazi industry. Its head in Berlin was Fritz Sauckel, who was sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials.
Julius Ritter was assassinated by members of the Francs-tireurs et partisans - Main-d'œuvre immigrée movement on September 28, 1943 in Paris.

On September 28, 1943, at around 8:30 a.m., outside his home at 18 rue Pétrarque in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, an FTP-MOI team (Marcel Rajman, Leo Kneler, Spartaco Fontanot and Celestino Alfonso) shot SS officer Ritter dead. As the latter climbs into his car, Celestino Alfonso fires several shots that are dampened by the window. Trying to get out of the way on the opposite side, Ritter is confronted by Marcel Rajman, who finishes him off with three bullets.
 The fatal blows are delivered by the pistol donated by Hans Heisel, a German from the Ministry of the Navy who passed to the Resistancevia the German Labor organization
