Former Nazi SS General Karl Wolff is Arreste

Jan. 22, 1962 - Karl Wolff (second from left), a former Nazi S.S. general who was a prominent figure in German-Allied peace negotiations in 1945, is being held on suspicion of crimes against the Jewish people. The Bavarian Justice Minister said Wolff was suspected of complicity in the mass murder of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe. He is said to have deported as many as 300,000 Jews to the Treblinka death camp, where they were murdered. The 62-year-old general, once Chief of Staff to S.S. leader Heinrich Himmler (second from right), was arrested at his villa at Kempfenhausen on Starnberg Lake last Thursday.
