PAGE ELEVEN m.YTHF.VH.l.I', (ARK.) COUUIKU NEWS U.S. Court Holds 19 Nazis Guilty Plunder, Murder Charges Affirmed , In Last War Trials NUERNBKRO, GoillKUiy. April 14 (.IV-An American court jested \ wound up the. last and tonnes! of all Cjertnnn war crimes trials. It ha.s convicted 19 of the 21 defciidants. Diplomats and Royernmcnt olli- cials were fontui guilty of atdins a c-riminal Na/i program of phmder and murder. Sentences will be pro' notinccd today. The trail dra^Rcd on for 15 monllts and produced one of the most de tailed pictures yet presented of the inner workings of the Na?.i KOV- ernnicnL and hn l v its brutal program was carried out. Nearly three years fl&o the International .military ti ibunal convicted (he top Na/is who conceived the program. The men just convicted were those who administered hie Nazi plan, and in some cases helped in (lie planning. It took the court three days, in- duding niuht .sessions, lo read an tf'Ut-page verdki, the longest in any German war cv'iics trial. In disposing of the List t v." • counts last night tite court convicted *•>•* and ' acquitted seven defendants of help- \ ing to force millions of conquered i • Europeans into slave labor. It convicted 12 and acquitted two of mem- kft.'ship In criminal Na/.i organlta- v^ tions. ( ^" Previously, the court had cnn- | victcd five and acquitted nine of plotting aggressive war; acquittal all of conspiracy to commit crimes: convicted four and acquitted three of atrocities against prisoners of war: convicted H and acquitted five of lakihR part In mass extermination of Jews, and convicted nuif and acquitted two of plunder of Invaded countries. Rejects "You, Too" Tlefenn* In tlie plunder finding, tha courl ' rejected a defense that the Allies themselves violated law with their occupation of Germany. The claim was raised by 11 German diplomats and Nazi govern- ! ment officials accused of wartime [ plunder and spoliation in countries ' conquered 'by Germany. The 11 are among 21 whose trial \ was the last in the long series of war i crimes trials held by American i courts. Two of the 21 who were • charged only with crlme-s ngainst. ! the Jews were cleared and freed. 'Hie court rejected the "you, too" defense and nine of the 11 were convicted of the plundering charge. * After disposing; of Ihis count in the • afternoon, the court, scheduled a night session in an attempt to complete reading of the IOIIR verdict. The court declared flatly: "We find no justification for the contention that the law of belligerent occupation has changed since 1045 or that the policy of the Allied government.'; during the post-war occupation of Germany contravenes the Hague convention, so as to make applicable the defense of tu quo que (you. too) here sought to be Interposed."
