Download PDF for this date

Georg Marshall, a former SS man, was sentenced today in State to five years in prison at hard labor for hanging a Jewish boy in 1942 after a lower court sentenced him to life imprisonment. The appeals court decided that Marshall could be sentenced only for complicity in murder because of lack of proof of “willful murder.”
