Jewish Protest Results in Resignation of Ex-nazi from Post of Deputy Mayor

Wilhelm Schepmann, the last commander of the Nazi S.A. Stormtroopers, has decided to resign his post as Deputy Mayor of Gifhorn, a town near Hanover, following a protest over his election by the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

The election of the former S.A. chief by Gifhorn’s Town Council was disclosed in a recent issue of Welt der Arbeit, a trade union publication which called his election “unpardonable.”
