Belle Zeck, another Nuremberg prosecutor, died the same day as Mr. Sprecher. Benjamin B. Ferencz, who was also a Nuremberg prosecutor and roomed with Mr. Sprecher, said only about a half dozen of their number were alive.
Mr. Sprecher was the only assistant prosecutor to present cases against two defendants at the first Nuremberg trial, in which a court created by the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain and France indicted 24 of the most important captured leaders of Nazi Germany.
