The West German Supreme Court has ordered that three German physicians acquitted three years ago of complicity in Nazi “mercy killings” be retried. The doctor–Aquillan Ullrich, 56; Klaus Endruweit, 56, and Heinrich Bunke, 55–were accused of participating in the gassing of 8,000 mental defectives in 1940.
