Two Ex-nazis Sentenced in Nuremberg for Mistreating a Jew in 1933

Karl Croneis, a former official in a Nazi organization, and Eddie Mueller, an associate in the group were sentenced by a German court here to eight and ten months imprisonment, respectively, for insulting and mistreating a young Jewish man and his non-Jewish woman companion in 1933.

The two defendants were charged and convicted of having been responsible for shaving the heads of the young man and his friend and forcing them to walk through the streets of this city in bathing suits and with large signs hanging from their necks denouncing their relationship. The young Jew was later sent to a concentration camp.
