the former Nazi general and leader
of the Belgian Fascists, who was
acquitted in Vienna last week of
charges of participation in mass

At the same time, protests over
Verbelen's acquittal continued to

The Belgian government announced

Belgian patriotic organizations
who wish to file their protests.
At a meeting of the Council
of Ministers Tuesday, Deputy For-

imprisonment in the Auschwitz
death camp and lives now in
New York, Tuesday told the
court trying three ex-Nazis how
one of the defendants coldly
munched on an apple while
"selecting" Jews to be gassed to
death in the camp's ovens.
Wollheim was the first prosecu-

trial of three former members of
the Gestapo accused of having
participated in the killing of be-
tween 2,500,000 and 4,000,000 Jews
