Dutch Govt. Seeks Punishment of Wartime Nazi Judges, Prosecutors

Download PDF for this date

The Dutch Government’s Institute for War Documentation, in cooperation with the West German war crimes investigation center at Ludwigsburg, has completed a supplementary list of 348 German judges and prosecutors who served in Nazi-occupied Holland in World War II and passed sentences of death on Dutch nationals.

This list was transmitted to the West German Government. Dutch officials pointed out today they do not know whether the wanted men are alive or not and expect the West German authorities to track them down.

Previously, the Dutch Government submitted a list of 310 Nazi wartime officials wanted in Holland for war crimes. Officials who served at the notorious Westerbork concentration camp were not included in either list. War crimes committed at that camp are the subject of a special judicial inquiry currently proceeding in West Germany.
