Friedman Removed to Buchenwald Camp; to Testify in Schuschnigg Trial

Dr. Desider Friedmann, former president of the Vienna Jewish Community who has been under arrest since March 18, has been transferred to the Buchenwald concentration camp in Thuringia, it was learned today, and will be held there as a witness in the forthcoming “treason” trial of dr. Kurt Shuschnigg, pre-Anschluss chancellor of Austria. Dr. Friedmann was arrested shortly after Anschluss on a charge of raising funds for the Schuschnigg government, was removed to the Dachau concentration camp, returned to Vienna, released and re-arrested on undisclosed charges a few days later.
