N.Y. Judge Dismissed Charges Against Survivor of Nazi Camps

Charges against a Jewish survivor of eight Nazi concentration camps who accidentally hit a policeman when he tried to strike a neo-Nazi demonstrator in Times Square last month, were dismissed here yesterday by Criminal Court Judge Francis X. O’Brien.

The charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct against Wolfgang Silberberg, the 48-year-old concentration camp survivor, were dropped after Assistant District Attorney John Collins told the court that his office did not feel that it could prove the guilt of the accused beyond a reasonable doubt.
