PRAGUE - Preserved bodies of executed Nazi officers were dissected in a Czech Republic medical college nearly 20 years after the end of World War II, a college official told a Prague newspaper Thursday.

The bodies of the German Nazis as well as their Czech collaborators were used as teaching tools at the Department of Anatomy at Masarykovo University in Brno, said the department's current director Dr. Libor Pac.

"Czech traitors and SS or Gestapo officers were executed in Brno in 1947," Pac told the Mlada fronta Dnes newspaper. "Their bodies were then preserved for dissection demonstrations.

"All that was left of them has been buried since 1966," he added.

Pac's comments appeared the a day after Mlada fronta Dnes reported that bodies of Czechs were formerly used in German and Austrian medical schools.
