COBLENZ—Prison terms at
hard labor were imposed Mon-
day night by the Coblenz court
on two former Nazi SS officers
for complicity in the slaughter
of 6,624 Russian Jews in Minsk
A 15-year sentence was given
to Carl Zenner, 62, a former
SS brigade leader and ,major
general of Nazi police, and an
eight year term to Hans Rem
mers, 55, former SS lieutenant
Testimony by Zenner, who
had been SS police leader in
Minsk in November, 1941, when
the murders took place, was
contradicted by Remmers. Zen-
ner claimed he knew nothing
about the mass shootings and
that he had only heard rumors
about them. Remmers testified
that Zenner had been helpful in
preparing for and carrying out
the mass executions.
