A 94-year-old man who worked as a low-ranking guard at Auschwitz will go on trial on Thursday. Such cases are brought to the courts because of the work of a dedicated team of ‘Nazi hunters’ who refuse to let sleeping dogs lie.
A new report published by the German government says that a 1998 law designed to stop war pensions being paid to former Nazis has had almost no effect. The Labor Ministry says there is little it can do now.
German prosecutors are investigating three more cases of former workers at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Investigations into Nazi crimes have been accelerated as the number of suspects dwindles.
Germany's judicial agency for hunting Holocaust criminals has announced that it has found eight more suspects aged 89 to 98. All worked in the Stutthof concentration camp, outside Gdansk, during World War II.
