Download PDF for this date

German police today arrested Wolfgang Hedler, neo-Nazi member of the West German parliament. He was seized to serve a nine-month sentence for anti-Semitic utterances and slandering anti-Hitler resistance members.

(The United Press reported from Bonn that there are 26 known neo-Nazi organizations operating in West Germany. The dispatch added that the authorities believe that they will present no real danger unless a leader strong enough to unite them appears.)
