Eugen WeidmannEugen Weidmann (February 5, 1903 - June 17, 1939) was the last man publicly executed in France.
He was born in Frankfurt-am-Main.
He was convicted of killing six people by shooting them in the back of the neck, in six separate incidents.
He was guillotined in Versailles, outside the prison Saint Pierre. The "hysterical behavior" by spectators was so scandalous that French President Albert Lebrun banned any future public executions on June 17, 1939.
