5-Month `Chelmno Trial' Concluded;
6 Are Imprisoned for Killing Jews

BONN, (JTA) — Sentences
ranging from 15 years at hard
labor to verdicts of nominal guilt
without penalty were handed
down by a jury court here in
the five-month trial of 12 former
SS guards accused of participa-
tion in the murder of 180,000
Jewish men, women and children
in the Chelmno concentration
camp during the years 1941 to
Gustav Laabs, 60, and Alois
Haefele, 69, each received terms
of 15 years at hard labor. Walter
Burmeister, 56, was given a 13-
year term. Kurt Moebius, 67,
was sentenced to eight years'
imprisonment. Karl Heinl, 50, re-
ceived a seven-year term. Ernest
Burmeister, 63, received a three-
and-a-half-year penalty.
Herbert Schroeder, the jury
court president, also announced
that while the other six defend-
ants were found guilty of compli-
city in the mass murders, the
court did not impose any sen-
tences on them, in accordance
with a provision of West German
penal law. Under that provision,
sentence was not imposed be-
cause their crimes were not re-
garded as sufficiently grave to
merit the minimum three-year
prison term for such crimes. The
trial lasted about six months.
The Chelmno camp was located
near Lodz in occupied Poland.
Laabs was charged with mur-
dering 100,000 Jews in gas vans
and with personally shooting

of Jews into death vans and
either killed or assisted in the
killing of sick slave laborers.

dicts were Martin Meier, an as-
sistant gas van driver; Walter
