Jews protest against work permit for former Nazi captain

Jews protest against work permit for former Nazi captain

A convicted Nazi war criminal was greeted by about 100 enraged Italian Jews when he arrived for his first day of work at a new job in Rome. A military tribunal recently gave former SS captain Erich Priebke permission to work at the offices of his lawyer.

Erich Priebke is serving a life sentence under house arrest for health reasons.

The demonstrators picketed the office, some of them shouting “Murderer!”

Italy’s Defence Minister has asked the military prosecutor for an explanation.
