Franz Rademacher, Hitler’s secretary for Jewish affairs, was sentenced by a German court in Nuremberg yesterday to three years and five months imprisonment for his part in the mass annihilation of 1,300 Jews in Yugoslavia during the Nazi occupation of that country. In issuing the verdict, the judge declared that Rademacher’s expense account showed that he knew what was happening to the Jewish victims.
