German Parliament to Start Inquiry on Nazis in Government

Download PDF for this date

The West German Parliament has approved a motion submitted by Social Democratic deputies to set up a Parliamentary committee to inquire into the personnel policy of the Federal Foreign Office. As the West German Government moves steadily toward complete sovereignty the return of former Nazis to Federal Government and official positions has increased to an alarming extent. One of the most motorizes examples of this trend is the return of Otto Detroit, former Nazi Party press chief, to journalism as an editorial worker on an official trade publication in Dusseldorf.
