Trial of General Who Commanded Nazi Troops in Warsaw Ghetto Battle Set for Fall

The trial of Nazi Gen. Jusrgen Stroop who commanded the German troops in the Warsaw ghetto uprising, will finally be held this fall, a spokesman for the Polish Government announced here today.

He explained that the Nazi’s trial had been delayed because of the disappearance of another Gestapo General, Hans Hoefle, from a detention camp in Austria. The two war criminals were to have been tried together. It has now been decided to try in absentia Gen. Hoefle, who was responsible for the deportation of 200,000 Warsaw Jews to the Tremblinka death camp in the summer of 1942.
