Prosecutor Seeks Life Term for German Who Drove Jews to Suicide

A life term at hard labor was demanded by the prosecution, as a trial was concluded here today against Willi Dusenschoen, a former concentration camp commandant, who was charged with causing the suicide of a Jew during the Nazi regime in 1933. The prosecution contended it had proven its case against Dusenschoen, contending he drove to self destruction Dr. Fritz Solmitz, a Socialist politician and editor of a newspaper at Lubeck. The verdict and judgment in the case are expected to be handed down by the court here later this week.
