FRANKFURT, (JTA) — Spe-
cial facilities for foreign cover-
age by newspapermen, radio
and television, were being ar-
ranged here, as authorities pre-
pared for the largest mass trial
of ex-Nazis ever held in West
Germany. The trial, scheduled
to take place later this year,
will involve at least 26 accused
war criminals charged with
many atrocities committed at
the Auschwitz concentration
camp.
All the accused are former
Auschwitz guards or members
of the Nazi medical staff at the
death camp. Among them is
Richard Baer, the last comman-
dant at Auschwitz. West Ger-
man agents arrested him in
1960 on an estate near Ham-
burg where he was working as
a forester.
At least 12 more accused are
being sought, and will be
brought to trial if they are lo-
cated in time for the opening
of the proceedings. Among the
latter is Dr. Joseph Mengele,
the Auschwitz "selection doc-
tor," who only a week ago was
reported arrested in Brazil.
According to Chief Prosecu-
tor Wolf, here, preliminary pro-
ceedings have already begun
against the first group of 26
accused. Three prosecutors have
been at work on the case for

SAN FRANCISCO, (JTA) —
Five young men were sent to
jail for anti-Semitic terrorism
by Superior Court Judge Harry
Neubarth.
He imposed terms ranging
from one to five months on the
youths for the year-long har-
rassment of a local Jewish res-
ident and his wife, William and
Elizabeth Bowman. The other
defendants escaped jail terms
and were -fined $500 each and
were placed on probation, while
an eighth youth, absent from
court, will be sentenced to six
months, the 'judge announced.
Neubarth said he spent a
sleepless night considering his
decision, pointing out that or-
ganized anti-Semitic terrorism
was something new in San Fran-
cisco. He noted that several
other anti-Jewish manifesta-
tions had emerged here since
the Bowman case and added
that "this case seems to have
started something that did not
exist before, and it should be
Stopped."
Two of the youths who were
given jail terms, Steve Van Ot-
ten, 22, and his brother, Barry,
19, are the sons of a police of-
ficer. A condition of restitution
for all the defendants, was the
requirement that they reim-
burse the Bowman family for
an estimated $2,000 in damages
suffered during the anti-Semit-
ic attacks.
Over a period of a year, the
eight defendants, together with
four other youths, several of
them from prosperou, amilies,

BONN, (JTA) — Seven for-
mer members of the "German
Union," an organization of Ger-
man nationals in Hungary,
went on trial at Tuebingen on
charges of shooting four Jews
in the vilage of Bratschka in
the spring of 1941. The trial of
the alleged ex-Fascists is the chairman of the sponsoring com-
first of several court proceed-
ings scheduled for the next few
weeks in various parts of Ger-
many.
At Stuttgart, a trial is sched-
uled to open Feb. 26 against
Felix Landau, a former leader
in the Nazi SS. He is charged
with complicity in the murder
of 20 Jews near Lodz, in 1941.
According to the prosecutor,
most of the charges are based
on the man's own diary.
Kurt Mueller, another ex-
Nazi, is scheduled to go on trial
in March, charged with partici-
pating in the murder of a Jew
named Fuersthenheim during
the "Crystal Night" wave of
terror in November, 1938.
