See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two former Nazi judges were acquitted today of wrong doing by a German court at Kansel despite the introduction of testimony to the effect that the two had wrongfully condemned Jews to death in 1943.

It was stated in court that the two men, set up as judges of special courts by the Nazis, had condemned in 1943 a Hungarian Jewish engineer, Werner Hollander, on charges of having violated the Nuremberg racial laws on four occasions. The two defendants are Fritz Hasenkamp and Dr. Edmund Kessler.
