JVEDNESDAY. DECEMBER «, 1950 Frau Else Koch Falls into Tears At Atrocity Trial * Notorious Witch Of Buchcnwald Insists 'Conscience Is Clean' AUGSBURG. Germany, Dec 6 (API-Frau Else R;ch broke tolo tears today for the first time In her trial on charges of inciting murders and atracifie.s (n Buchemvald Concentration Camp. The • calm she Jins maintained throughout six days of ncrve-crilll- insr testimony about nuchemvald cruelties broke as the chief Judge turned to her suddenly and demanded: "Do you still maintain that you have never seen any mistreatment of prisoners?" "Never." she walled, bursting into tears. "Have all these witnesses lied, then?" the judge insisted. "Yes." she snapped, recovering her .composure. Referring to a Catholic priest who had testified against her. the Judge continued: "And the priest ^also had lied?" JP "Yes." she insisted. Murmurs of protest rose from the crowded courtroom. Conscience Is Clean "I have a clean conscience," Frau Koch declared, "my memory Is excellent." One prisoner. Josef Christian, had just told the court he and a Jewish prisoner encountered Frau Koch in the Buchenwald Camp. Despite Christian's .warning, the Jew stared at Frau Koch's plump figure i- which, according to witnesses, she often displayed In thin and scanty clothing. Trau Koch noticed his stare and called a guard. Both prisoners were beaten ,anri the jeiv was then sent to a "punishment group 1 .''where he soon died. The presiding Judge. Georg Magl- not, said today that he has received many letters—both from Germany and abroad — demand that Frau Koch be put to death. The maximum punishment which can be given her. however, is life imprisonment. West Germany has abolished the death penalty.
