British Mp’s Attack Bonn Appointee to London As Ex-nazi Leader

Barnett Janner and several other MP’s last night demanded in Commons that the British Foreign Office reject the appointment of Susanne Simonis by the West German Government to care for the welfare of German women employed in Britain, on the grounds that she held a similar position among German women in Japan during the Nazi regime.

Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs Anthony Nutting, rejected the demand, asserting that Miss Simonis had not been employed by the German Foreign Office prior to the end of World War II. He stated that “a competent committee completely cleared her of Nazism after an attack on her in the German press.”
