The World

September 08, 1987

A former Nazi official who later worked for the West German government went on trial in Bonn accused of sending 220 Jews to their deaths during World War II. Lawyers representing relatives of the dead said that Modest von Korff, 70, had personally authorized deportations from Chalons-sur-Marne in occupied France to the Auschwitz concentration camp where the victims were gassed. Von Korff denies the charges.
