Download PDF for this date

Carmen Mory, 40, one of the chief guards at the notorious Ravensbrueck concentration camp for women was accused today of administering lethal injections to Jewish women from Czechoslovakia.

The trial of Mory and 15 other guards charged with crimes against Allied women was interrupted when she shouted “Lies, lies,” at the witness who testified to her murder of the Czech women. Other witnesses reported that experiments in sterilization and other barbarous medical experiments were carried on at the camp.
