Jewish Worker Given 10 Years Imprisonment on Nazi Evidence

Download PDF for this date

The special summary court today sentenced Arthur Kopper, a Jewish worker, to ten years imprisonment upon evidence produced by the Nazis that he had participated in an attack upon a police official.

This heavy sentence was meted out in spite of the evidence on the part of Kopper’s family, whose members swore that he was at home at the time the attack is reported to have taken place. Kopper’s wife was removed from the court in a state of collapse.
