Two Chilean Nazis Start Serving Jail Terms for Inciting Against Jews

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Two leaders of the Chilean Nazi Party started serving 20-day jail terms today, after their conviction on charges of having incited attacks against Jewish stores and homes here in January 1958, were upheld by the Chilean Court of Appeals.

Franz Pfeiffer, former commander of the Nazi Party, and his top aide, Luis Lazaro Maluenda, were sentenced to the jail terms shortly after their conviction, more than six years ago. But their appeals have been pending until now.
