Download PDF for this date

Seven Nazis received prison sentences ranging between three months and one year today being found guilty of participation in the attack upon the Jews of Sensburg.

The verdict was handed down by the summary court dealing with terrorizers in Lyck, East Prussia.

The sentenced Nazis are Max Matz, Carl Pasucha, Gollub Hoffman, Laudien Koszinowski, Erich Pasucha, Flinzack Zimmerman and Kirm Heinrich.

The court held that the attacks upon the Jews in Sensburg were the signal for other anti-Jewish excesses in other sections in East Prussia, despite the fact that the anti-Jewish allegations of Prince August Wilhelm, son of the former Kaiser, and others are baseless.

Jewish Telegraphic Agency representative here, stated that there is no reason for anxiety on this score.

The Prussian Supreme Administrative Court, they pointed out, which is the highest judicial tribunal, has repeatedly ruled that citizenship once granted cannot be annuled.
