Death Sentence Commuted to Life Imprisonment

The death sentence of Samuel Loewinsohn, convicted for murder of the wife of his employer, Foerster, was commuted to life imprisonment by the Prussian Minister of Justice, as a result of the plea of his attorney, Klee.

Loewinsohn’s case aroused a great deal of interest as this is the first time in many years that a Jew was convicted for murder in Germany.
