Download PDF for this date

Ex-resistance fighters demanded in resolutions adopted at a meeting here today that Chile extradite Dr. Josef Mengele, the notorious Auschwitz death camp “selection doctor, ” and that Ghana extradite Otto Schumann, also a notorious Nazi participant in the slaughter of Jews during World War II.

The meeting, held by the European Resistance Fighters and Former Deportees, also demanded that Austria extradite to this country the former SS General Verbelen. The resolution noted that “under peculiar circumstances,” this Nazi had been granted Austrian citizenship.
