The ruling also held that although Beckerle belonged to the Nazi elite, he could not have known of the fate intended for the deportees. Beckerle was first arrested in October, 1959, but was released a few days later. He was arrested again last May after the apprehension of Nazi master killer Adolf Eichmann.
