  • Description

    TWO OF ADOLF EICHMANN'S SUBORDINATES WERE TODAY (MONDAY) CHARGED IN A FRANKFURT COURT WITH MURDERING AN UNDETERMINED NUMBER OF HUNGARIAN JEWS DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

    HERMANN KRUMEY, FORMER DEPUTY CHIEF OF THE "SPECIAL EICHMANN COMMAND" IN HUNGARY, IS ACCUSED OF DIRECTING THE DEPORTATION OF MORE THAN 400,000 JEWS TO THE AUCHSWITZ EXTERMINATION CAMP IN 1994.

    OTTO HUNSCHE, KRUMEY'S LEGAL LIAISON OFFICIAL AT THE BERLIN SECURITY HEADQUARTERS, IS ALLEGED TO HAVE GIVEN LEGAL ADVICE TO KRUMEY AND TO HAVE SERVED AS LIAISON OFFICIAL TO THE NAZI REGISTRATION OFFICES FOR HUNGARIAN JEWS.

    WEST GERMAN OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE CASE FOR EIGHT YEARS. THE PROSECUTION WILL BE SUMMING ABOUT 50 WITNESSES, INCLUDING JEWISH SURVIVORS AND FORMER S.S MEN, TO TESTIFY.

    EICHMANN, HEAD OF THE GESTAPO'S JEWISH AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT, WAS CAPTURED BY ISRAELI SECRET AGENTS IN ARGENTINA AND TAKEN TO ISRAEL WHERE HE WAS TRIED AND HANGED IN MAY, 1962, FOR THE MASS MURDER OF JEWS UNDER THE NAZI REGIME.
