Author of Hessian “starve out Jews” Plans for Hitlerist Regime Made Immune from Treason Proceedings

Dr. Best, the author of the notorious Boxheim documents, which were discovered in the Hitlerist headquarters in Hesse, containing plans for the annihilation of the Jews if the Hitlerists came to power in Germany, by the introduction of food cards which would not be issued to Jews, so that they would be starved out, had been elected by the Diet of the State of Hesse as a member of its Legislative Commission and a member of the Supreme Court of the State of Hesse. Dr. Best is thus safe by his immunity as a judge from the treason proceedings which the Federal authorities intended taking against him on the ground of the Boxheim documents, for plotting against the State.
