See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A former Transport Ministry official in Nazi Germany testified at a war crimes trial here today that he did not know that the trains he supplied for the transport of Jews were taking them to death camps.

That statement was made by Albert Ganzenmuller, former state secretary in the Nazi Ministry, in the trial of former SS Gen. Karl Wolff, who is being tried on charges of complicity in the wartime murders of 300, 000 Jews.
