OPENING SPECIAL ONLY '3 noiiTiis; 1 RENT FREE Official Auschwitz List Most Horrible Document By JOSEPH MaeSWEEN FRANKFURT (CP) Prosecutor Joachim Kuegler, 18, is author of the "most horrible book ever written the story of Ausohwitx. His 700-pagt volume is the legal charge-sheet against 21 men on trial hers, as officials and guards at Auscbwits, the Indescribable Nail death camp that exterminated millions of Jews, Poles, Russians and Gypsies. i The young prosecutor takes a flat, unsensatlonal approach to his Job "sensation is a by' product" but he spoke with grim finality when he gave this analysis to a Canadian reporter: , 7 "History his many examples of slaughters and atrocities, but for me two things emerge about Auschwitz.. v . "Auschwitz was a death factory with Vt the sams Urn a successful attempt to make-use of the victims' belongings rings, watches, silk and wool len underwear, gold teeth, wom en's hair, anything. This was new. ''the second thing is that from studying the personal files of the men who worked at Auschwitz their religious, family and persons! back-trorad I'm convinced they reirtsented a cross-section of the German population at the time. And not one of them re belled." . CAN'T EXPLAIN Whv did they do it? "I don't know." said Kuegler with a hewless gesture. "I m onlv a lawyer." Th case, which began last Dec 2 and is expected to run until early, next year.. Is the bissest in a new wave of war- crime trials now being beard in West Germany. Its significance is creat " Unlike the post war Nuern berg trials, where Allied Judges tried Germans for, war crimes under international law, the German prosecutors accuse She defendants of violations of Ger man criminal law ranging from murder to assault and battery. Wide newspaper' coverage has caused spasms of shock among Germans, and some of . ine older generation are said to- believe th exercise is pointless nearly 21 years alter the war. But Kuegler draws satisfaction from the impact on young peo- nto. ' ' ' .- ' "They are asking a lot of Questions questions that have an answers." b said.- " i Th harlag before three Judges and a Jury has bee moved from thaFraakfart courthouse to a more specious public hall, whose gallery is "sold out for months." Teachers and veuth club leaders bring young folk to listen. REACT WITH SILENCE Apart from gas - chamber stories they bear how babies' brains wer dashed out against walla and how rats scurried over starving children so emaciated they were branded on the leg because ' their arms EXTRA HMtlnf heatlas srtrea limn n naeetal la every .

I There are some faintings among spectators but "norror is usually expressed by dead silence," Kuegler said. Hear ings are neid tnree eays a week and it was an off day when a group of Commonwealth reporters visited the court.' A separate case, involving two henchmen of Adolf Eichmann, was being tried. The Auschwitz accused, a routine-looking group, ranged' from Boger, she dreaded bead of the --camp's political section. to former guards. Each could pass for an ordinary burgher, or citizen did Just that, in fact, for many years. Many sought to put blame on the dead Eichmann, who -tried to Implement the "final solution" of the Jewish problem. Apart from one defendant who killed a pedestrian while drunk-driving, the accused apparently have lived within the law since the war, sometimes under assumed names Kuegler estimates about 2t Auschwitz big fish" are still free. Why has retribution waited so long?. Kuegler indicated the West German authorities have been slow "this sounds like an ac cusation and In a way It Is" but there were difficulties. DOCTOR IN GHANA For on thing, Auschwitz was In Poland, behind the Iron Cur tain. .Several wanted men took refuge on the South American chessboard. Eichmann was grabbed by Israeli agents but Dr. Joseph Mengele. Ausch witz doctor. Is still there. An other doctor, Schumann, is safely ensconced In Ghana as President Nkrumah's personal physician. After the war th Allies, as suming the jnaia responsibility for dealing with war criminals. sentenced about 3.000 persons. The Russians sentenced an es timated 10.00. German courts, limited until IsH to dealing with war and racial offences, against fellow-Germans and stateless persons. sentenced a total of 1,443 until th end of law.-.' V An Important development came In 1954 when,, with legal activity dragg'ng, thou sands of German prisoners, in-' eluding war criminals and witnesses, were released by the Soviet Union.1 New trials brought out horror similar to those now being recounted at Frankfurt 1 .'- .- Ordinary Germans had suspected that Allied t r I b a a a I s war tinged with vengeance but now their own court were proving that tor instance, the SS Elite Guard was a sort of Murder Incorporated:"' ' - v, r'-HAS IM WITNESSES Another significant v a t cam ia 1154 when legal authorities of West Germany's II states formed at Ludwigsburg a central agency to deal with foreign countries and clear away tangles among themselves.

"We investigated 1.500 people," said Kuegler, who began th Job In li. "Many Ausch witz victims were nroaen pnys-ically and mentally. They forget, or they imagine things. We have 150 witnesses now.". Much has been said about the Communist countries refusing to divulge information to West Germany, but Kuegler said that recently Russia, Poland and East Germany have given documents and co-operation "with out trying to make political capital perhaps it is symbolic." Some 800 cases now are pend- Int. and Kuegler said this rep resents a determination among responsible Germans to facs up to and root out the evils of the past.
