Fritz Obermeyer, Jewish director of Jewish owned paper mills at Nuremberg, was arrested on the charge of economic treason. The charge was that he had opened an English branch factory and had sent machinery and specialists to England.

Emil Rosenfelder, co-director of the factory, was branded as a traitor by Nazis. It is alleged that he illegally transferred machinery abroad to compete with German industry.
