The World

December 06, 1987

An international panel handpicked by Austrian President Kurt Waldheim to find him innocent of Nazi war crimes will reveal damning new evidence about him, a newspaper reported. The Chicago Sun-Times said in its early editions today that the six-member Historical Commission went beyond its mandate to examine documents by interviewing witnesses, including Waldheim's former commanding officer and his top Nazi aide. They told the panel that Waldheim's unit was responsible for deporting thousands of Jews to death camps. Meanwhile, Justice Department sources confirmed that the department had officially notified the commission that its own yearlong investigation of Waldheim "proved personal awareness of war crimes."
