Nazi Hangs Himself in Jail; Said Killing 5,000 Jewish Girls Was “painful Reminiscence”

Karl Galasch, former deputy commandant of the Grossrosen concentration camp, who was under death sentence, today committed suicide in the Wroclaw prison by hanging himself.

At his trial, Galasch declared that the killing at the camp of some 5,000 young Jewish women who had formerly been employed in the Krupp arms factories was a “most painful reminiscence.”
