2 Austrian Police Officials Sentenced in Graz for Participating in Murders of Jews

Two high Austrian police officials were sentenced to prison terms by a Graz court for participating in the wartime murders of Polish Jews. Gerulf Mayer, a police major, received an 11-year term after he was found guilty of having murdered an adult and two children and of having participated in the liquidation of the Polish village of Polska-Skala in which 29 persons were killed. Alfred Luser drew a seven-year prison term for killing six persons. The two have appealed the verdicts.
