Auschwitz Material Names More Ss Men; Camp Doctor to Face Trial

The prosecution office announced today the receipt of valuable material from the Auschwitz Museum in Poland on the crimes committed in the mass murder factory. The material includes orders of the camp commander, in which numerous SS men are named who have not yet been brought to justice.

At Muenster, it was announced today that Paul Kremer, the former Auschwitz murder camp “selection doctor,” will go on trial before the Jury Court there next month.

Kremer had been sentenced to death in the Auschwtiz trial in Cracow in 1947. The sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment and, in 1958, he was pardoned by Polish Communist authorities. But the International Auschwitz Committee has brought charges against him.
