René Floriot - People Defended By Floriot - Marcel Petiot

Marcel Petiot

"Floriot also defended Dr. Marcel Petiot who, between 1942 and 1944, lured 63 Jewish refugees to his Paris house with promises of help; and was accused of robbing and killing at least 27 of them. Floriot proved that three or more of the alleged victims were German agents and that some of them were still alive. But though Floriot won professional respect for his tenacious defense, Petiot went to the guillotine. Floriot went too—in France, the lawyer traditionally takes the last walk with his client."
