Download PDF for this date

Three war criminals convicted some time ago of murdering Hungarian Jews during the Nazi occupation were executed in Budapest last week, according to dispatches received here from the Hungarian capital today.

The men, identified as W. Kresel, L. Nemet and A. Sandor were convicted in a district court at Budapest and sentenced to death, but the executions had been delayed while they appealed unsuccessfully for clemency to the State Council.
