Dr. Eugene Kaufmann, a former German judge who was ousted by the Nazis when Hitler came to power, died here at the age of 55. After his arrival in this country, Dr. Kaufmann played a major role in securing indemnification claims by Jewish victims of the Nazis who had emigrated to Baltimore. Through his efforts, Jewish refugees in Baltimore received more than $3,000,000 in lump-sum settlements of World War II claims against Germany.

An expert on immigration and naturalization laws, Dr. Kaufmann had been executive director and secretary of the Baltimore office of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society since 1945.
