Download PDF for this date

Leading members of the Swiss Parliament and prominent clergymen and educators here joined a mass meeting here today to protest against plans in West Germany to let the statute of limitations on the prosecution of Nazi war criminals go into effect next May 8.

Held under the auspices of the Judeo-Christian Working Community, the meeting adopted a resolution urgently requesting the Bonn Government to extend the statute “lest Nazi criminals walk freely again, holding their heads high and even boasting of their crimes.”
