Two survivors of a Nazi forced labor camp who are now citizens of the United States testified to the brutality of a former S.S. leader and concentration camp guard being tried here for the murder of an estimated several hundred Jews.
David Tennenbaum of Seattle, Washington, and Isaac Weitz of New York, testifying at the trial of Paul Thomanek, commander of a camp near Tarnopol, Galicia, described his beating and shooting of Jewish prisoners. Mr. Weitz estimated that during the time he was in the camp, between 1941 and 1943, Thomanek and his Ukrainian guards shot, hanged or beat to death several hundred Jews.
