A 63-year-old West Berlin saloon-keeper was arrested today on charges that he was responsible for the deportation of 6,000 Jews while working as an aide to the notorious Adolf Eichmann in World War II. The charges were brought by the West Berlin Prosecution Department against Richard Hartmann who has been running a saloon in the center of Berlin for the past ten years. Hartmann is alleged to have been a high Nazi official assigned to help implement the “final solution,” the extermination of European Jewry.
