MUNICH, (JTA) — The

Munich court sentenced a 58-
year-old former Nazi execution
squad chief to 10 years in prison
and a co-defendant to seven
years for the murder of 19,000
Jews and other "racially in-
ferior persons" in Poland and
Russia during World War II.
Otto Bradfisch was given 10
years and Wilhelm Schultz 51,
seven years. The prosecution
had demanded life sentences for
the two because they had car-
ried out the killings "with con-
viction."
A third defendant, Oscar
Winkler, received a three-and-
a-half-year sentence. Carl Rub-
berg and Gunther Stroh, two
other co-defendants, were ac-
quitted.

first of a series of trials arising
out of Nan investigation of more

of the Auschwitz murder factory
will start in mid-1962, Fritz
Wolf, Frankfurt state prosecu-
tor, announced.

He said arrest orders had
beeri issued for 22 of the
former staff members. The
massive investigation was un-
dertaken on instructions of
the Federal Supreme Court.

The prosecutor said that 50
persons were found to be "un-
der heavy suspicion" of having
participated in the murder of
millions of victims. ' These in-
cluded an estimated 2,000,000
Jews who were gassed and
burned in the huge camp.
Reporting that the w h e r e-
abouts of most of the suspects
could not be determined, the
prosecutor also reported that
140 of the former staff members
were known or believed to be
