Oskar Groening, 'Accountant of Auschwitz,' to Face Trial in April

By    |   Monday, 02 Feb 2015 02:21 PM

Oskar Groening, the 93-year-old dubbed the "accountant of Auschwitz," will go on trial in April to face charges that he was an accessory to 300,000 murders as a Nazi death camp guard.

The Lueneburg state court said Monday Groening's trial would open April 21, The Associated Press reported.

Groening has openly talked about his time as a guard and says he witnessed atrocities but didn't commit any himself.

He's one of some 30 former Auschwitz guards against whom federal investigators in 2013 recommended that state prosecutors pursue charges.

Groening is accused of helping the Nazis economically, and supporting mass killings by processing the belongings stolen from camp victims.

More than 50 Holocaust survivors or victims' families have joined the case as co-plaintiffs and many are expected to attend the trial.
