Griebl Drew Up File on U.S. Jews for Berlin, Investigator Relates

Dr. Ignatz T. Griebl, a fugitive in Germany from a United States warrant in connection with the German spy investigation, drew up in New York an elaborate file of prominent Jews in America to be forwarded to Berlin, it is related by Leon G. Turrou, former agent of the federal Bureau of investigation, who participated in the espionage probe, in one of a series of articles running in the New York post.

The file was shown to him, Mr. Turrou said. It included the biographies and histories of American Jews and every attack ever printed or publicly uttered against them. The former investigator quoted Dr. Griebl as saying he sent information on the Jews to Germany to help the Nazis fight the Jewish boycott.
