Polish Documents Incriminate Former Concentration Camp Guard

Documents incriminating former concentration camp guard Hermine Braunsteiner-Ryan have been delivered to West German authorities by the Polish Commission for the Investigation of Nazi Crimes, it was announced here. Mrs. Ryan, now held in a Duesseldorf jail, was extradited from the U.S. last week.

Due to be cross-examined by a Duesseldorf public prosecutor this week, she is being held in connection with the murder of nearly 2,000 Jewish women and children in the Lublin-Maidanek concentration camp in Poland during World War II.

The new Polish documents provide evidence of Mrs. Ryan’s role in the selection of camp inmates and in the mass-execution.

Di Yiddishe Zeitung of Buenos Aires, which failed to publish during two during two days in April, did not appear last Thursday and Friday in what appeared to be a final breakdown after 58 years of existence, because of financial difficulties which could not be overcome by an ad hoc committee formed in April to attempt a revival. Lack of some $200,000 which were needed to solve the situation precipitated the shutdown.
