German Labor Council Lists Prominent Nazis Receiving Pensions

Hanover, Sep. 2 (JTA) – The Trade Union Council of Lower Saxony has just published a second list of prominent Nazis and "enemies of democracy" who are receiving Bonn government pensions and subsidies from private industry. The list supplements an earlier report on 51 Nazi top officials living in comfort on pensions.

Heading the new list of "murderers," as the Council calls them, who are receiving millions of deutsche marks while Nazi victims are still awaiting adequate compensation, are such men as Helmuth Stellrecht, one-time aide to Alfred Rosenberg; Hans Lammers, former chief of Hitler's Chancellery; the widow of Dr. Harald Turner, an SS leader who participated in the massacre of Jews in the Belgrade ghetto, and a number of former police and SS officials as well as concentration camp doctors.

Stellrecht has asked a 90,000 mark pension, claiming lack of responsibility for Nazi crimes because he served as a deputy in the Reichstag. Lammers is asking the return of property received as a gift from the Nazi Party for services rendered--which include the organization of the mass murder of Jews.
