German Jews Demand Trial of Nazi Who Sterilized Jewish Women

The Central Council of Jews in Germany has demanded that German courts try Prof. Karl Glauberg, who was responsible for the sterilization of several hundred Jewish women at the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz, and similar offenders for crimes against humanity. The council, which first broke the news of Glauberg’s return to West Germany from a Soviet prisoner of war camp, said that many of the subjects of his sterilization “experiments” were later killed by the Nazis.

At a camp in Munich for returned prisoners, Glauberg held a press conference with German newsmen and seemed proud of his “scientific” achievements. He asserted that as a result of his “experiments” he had developed a method a method of sterilization by simple injection.
