French Nazi collaborator. He was one of only two Frenchmen to be convicted of war crimes against humanity (the other was Maurice Papon).
Sympathetic to the ideas of Marshall Petain, Touvier joined the "Milice", a militia of the Vichy regime which collaborated with the Nazis against French partisans. Touvier was appointed head of the intelligence under the direction of Klaus Barbie and in January 1944 became second regional head of the Vichy Government.
On 10 September 1946 he was sentenced to death in absentia by the French courts for treason and collusion with the enemy.
In 1971, President Georges Pompidou granted him pardon. He was brought to trial only on 17 March 1994 for crimes against humanity.
He died 17 July 1996 in Fresnes prison, near Paris.
