Concentration Camp Official Condemned in Poland for Torture and Murder of Jewish Women

A special tribunal in the Polish town of Torun has sentenced to death Wladyslaw Kuhlman, an official of the Szoropasy concentration camp who was responsible for the death of hundreds of Jewish women, the Lublin radio reported today.

Kuhlman, according to the broadcast, drove naked Jewish women into the countryside in the dead of winter, forcing them to remain outdoors until they died from what the Nazis called “the frost cure.”
