Former Deportees Support Nazi Hunter

Download PDF for this date

A newly formed “Action Committee for Beate Klarsfeld,” led by LICA president Jean Pierre-Bloch, has published an appeal in “Le Monde” in support of the Nazi hunter due to stand trial in West Germany on June 25. Mrs. Klarsfeld faces a possible prison sentence on charges of coercion and the attempted abduction of Kurt Lischka, a former head of the Gestapo in Paris and now living in Cologne.

In conjunction with LICA (International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism), several former deportee associations sponsored the appeal for the woman “who has passionately protested the total impunity granted the worst Nazi criminals.”
