VIENNA (JTA)—A hitherto
unknown mass grave of thou-
sands of Nazi victims, mostly
Jews, has been discovered in
the Tyrol mountains, not far
from th esite of the recent
winter Olympic competitions.
The victims had been em-
ployed by the Nazis in building
fortresses in the mountain's to
hold back the Allied armies ad-
vancing from the south. The
Vienna Jewish community has
taken over the care of the grave
and has put up a temporary
monument.
At a press conference here,
Dr. Simon Wiesenthal, director
of the Jewish Documentation
Center in Vienna, disclosed that
the Nazis trained selected SS
men in mass murder techniques
at four "murder schools" in
Austria and Germany.
He said the "graduates"
applied their training at
three Nazi camps in Poland,
Treblinka, Sobibor and Bel-
zec — where millions of Jews
were murdered between
1942 and 1944. One of the
"schools" was in Hartheim
in upper Austria, and the
others at Hadamar, Graffen-
egg and Sonnenberg, he said.
He said he had turned over
to Austrian Justice Minister
Christian Broda a large dossier
containing results of his re-
search on the murder school at
Hartheim, • plus documentary
evidence against 14 Austrians
who were trained there who are
still alive and free. Austrian

He estimated that some
30,000 persons were killed at
Hartheim during the war. De-
scribing the training of the
"professional murders," he said
they had to live near a crema-
torium to get used to the smell,
and that their first victims were
Austrians or Germans. Alcohol
and women were offered to the
"students" as r e w a r d s, he
added.
