A Cologne court has sentenced three former SS men to prison sentences of up to 12 years for complicity in the murder of thousands of Jews deported from wartime France. The longest term was handed down to Herbert-Martin Hagen, a former assistant to the SS police chief in France and head of a department in the Paris Gestapo. The one-time Paris Gestapo chief, Kurt Lischka, was jailed for 10 years, and a former SS sergeant, Ernst Heinrichsohn, was jailed for six years.
