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

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

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.”
