Report: 92-year-old Auschwitz Guard Indicted in Germany

Wednesday, 15 July 2015 02:01 PM

BERLIN (AP) — Prosecutors in Germany have indicted a 92-year-old former Auschwitz guard on charges of accessory to murder.

German news agency dpa reported Wednesday the man has been indicted before a juvenile court in Hanau, near Frankfurt, because he was between 19 and 20 years old at the time of the alleged crimes.

The suspect, who wasn't named, is alleged to have played a part in the deportation of prisoners from Nazi transit camps in Berlin, Drancy in occupied France, and Westerbork in the occupied Netherlands. According to dpa, prosecutors say at least 1,075 of those prisoners were gassed to death shortly after arriving in Auschwitz.

The move comes on the same day a German court convicted former SS sergeant Oskar Groening of accessory to the murder of 300,000 Jews in Auschwitz.
