Nazis Sentenced for Killing Tarnopol Jews Seek Revision of Verdict

Five of the seven former Nazi officers who were sentenced to prison terms last week for their roles in the slaughter of Polish Jews in Tarnopol during the Hitler era, today filed appeals in the West German High Court for revision of their sentences.

Those appealing their prison sentences were: Paul Rabel, 60, and Hermann Mueller, 57, who were given life terms; Walter Lambor, 60, who was given a 10-year sentence; Gunter Winkler, 49, who was given five years; and Thomas Hasenberg, 57, who was given three and a half years. The prosecution has not asked for any revision of sentences in the case.
