Download PDF for this date

A deportation hearing for Bronius Kaminskas, charged with complicity in the murder of 660 Jewish adults and children in Lithuania in 1941, was postponed yesterday until January. Kaminskas, a 73-year-old janitor in Hartford, Conn., appeared before an Immigration and Naturalization Service judge in Waterbury on charges that he falsified his Nazi past when he immigrated to the United States in 1941.

Similar charges were made against two Latvian immigrants, Boleslavs Maikovskis, 72, of Mineola, Long Island, and Karlis Detlavs, 65, of Baltimore when they appeared in INS courts in New York and Baltimore yesterday. Their hearings were also postponed until January or February.
