Biography

Willy Fascher was mainly a sabre fencer but also participated with the foil team at the 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games. He was eliminated in the second round in both the team and individual sabre events. After a really poor first round performance in the team foil, Fascher was replaced by team-mate [Siegfried Rossner]. In 1953 and 1954 Fascher was German sabre champion. With TK Hannover he also won national team titles in 1951 and 1952. In 1956 he was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf.

Fascher later became the general director of Stadtsparkasse Hannover. In this function he approved several unsecured loans in millions and collected corresponding commissions. He also made several transactions for his own benefit. This scandal was later called “Die Fascher Affäre”. He was arrested in 1977 after intensive investigations, and received an unknown sentence in 1983.
