Nazi Victims Seek Action on Their Right to Re-employment

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

No less than 8,000 pre-Hitler public officials who were ousted or otherwise disciplined by the Nazis on racial or political grounds now live in Berlin, a spokesman of the League of Nazi Victims declared here at a special press conference.

These Nazi victims have a more difficult time of it than former Nazi civil servants who lost their jobs at the end of the war, he pointed out. Some thousands are back in office, but after more than eight years other thousands are still unemployed. Former civil service employees receive no pensinn while court decisions directing their re-employment are shrugged off as mere recommendations and generally remain without effect.

In view of this attitude, the spokesman demanded the appointment of a Federal Commissioner with plenary powers to solve these problems.
