Download PDF for this date

It was announced today that Dr. Paul Zubak and Greta Taumann, said to be Nazi agents, will be deported. They were arrested on May 3 after an all-night search of their home was said by police to have uncovered seditious material and letters about the German Jews in Palestine.

The two had denied charges of sedition and were being held by police after a hearing. The documents were turned over to the Criminal Investigation Department here.

Dr. Zubak and Miss Taumann, both of Vienna, arrived in Palestine in 1933 and first resided in Nazareth, where they are believed to have organized Nazi headquarters for Palestine. Later they moved to Tel Aviv, where Dr. Zubak represented a film company.
