Nuremberg, Apr. 12 (JTA) – Ernst Kaltenbrunner, former chief of the German Security policy, was charged today by U.S. Prosecutor Col. John H. Amen with responsibility for issuing the orders for the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Continuing the U.S. case against Kaltenbrunner, Col. Amen submitted to the War Crimes Court an affidavit from a Gen. Strup, one of the German officials who participated in the liquidation of the ghetto, declaring that the security police who carried out the liquidation took their orders directly from Kaltenbrunner.
At this point Col. Amen asked Kaltenbrunner: "Do you know that all 400,000 Warsaw Jews were actually slaughtered at Treblinka, or as usual don't you know anything about that?"
