Hans Paasche


German politician, Imperial Navy officer, and combative pacifist, Hans Paasche was also a big game hunter and nature conservationist, explorer of Africa and life reformer, alcohol abstainer and vegetarian, author and revolutionary.

He was the son of the Reichstag vice president Hermann Paasche and Lisi Paasche, and was married to Gabrielle (Ellen) Witting. After the sudden death of Ellen at twenty nine, he retreated to his estate at Waldfrieden to take care of his four young children.

His assassination was ultimately decreed by the ultra-nationalist death squad Organisation Consul. On 21 May 1920, at the age of 39, he was shot by a commando of sixty soldiers from District Command III while supposedly trying to escape.
