German Educator, Accused of Instructing Auschwitz Guards, Suspended

Dr. Kurt Knittel, administrator of the Karlsruhe public school system, was suspended from office today by the State Ministry of Education of this Province of Baden-Wurttemberg.

The International Committee of Victims of Auschwitz last week publicly accused Dr. Knittel of having headed the classes for instruction of the SS Nazi guards at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp during the war.
