Abraham Gutraman, a displaced Jew, who returned from Israel to Germany without permission, was sentenced to 60 days’ imprisonment by a U.S. Court in Stutigart for illegally entering the U.S. zone of Germany.

American officials said last night that approximately 20 Jewish displaced persons who returned to Israel from Germany will have to face trial on the same charge.
