A 50-year-old Jewish woman tourist from West Germany was sentenced last Thursday by a district court here to three months Imprisonment after being convicted of having mistreated other women in a Nazi labor camp during World War II. Duba Gritzmacher was identified by two sisters, who had been inmates of the Landsberg camp, as the woman named by the Nazis to supervise other women inmates. The sisters and other former inmates of the camp testified during the trial that Mrs. Gritzmacher had perpetrated a number of cruelties. Other witnesses, however, testified that she behaved favorably. The court said it took into consideration the positive testimony in imposing the light sentence. The defendant’s attorney was given permission to appeal.
