An East German association of former deportees, “The Union of Former Buchenwald-Dora Detainees,” announced today that former gestapo official, Klaus Barbie, is living in La Paz, Bolivia under the assumed name of “Wilm.” The association said that it has informed the West German State Prosecutor in charge of investigations and prosecutions of Nazi Crimes, Manfred Ludolph, of this fact. The association did not say how it managed to locate the former Nazi official nor will it release his exact address.
