Auschwitz bookkeeper sentenced to four years in prison for role in Nazi genocide

LUENEBURG, Germany A 94-year-old German man known as the "bookkeeper of Auschwitz" was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in the murder of 300,000 people at the Nazi death camp, in what could be one of the last big Holocaust trials. Betraying little emotion, white-haired Oskar Groening sat with his arms crossed, looking around the court room while the judge explained the verdict. After the hearing, he shuffled out of court, hunched over a walking frame with his head bowed #NewsTracker #Europe #Germany #United Kingdom #Hungary #Genocide #Holocaust #opinion #Auschwitz

Germany's von Weizsaecker, president at unification, dies at 94

BERLIN (Reuters) - Former president Richard von Weizsaecker, who challenged German attitudes about the Holocaust by arguing that the country had been liberated by the Nazi defeat in 1945, died on Saturday at the age of 94, the current president's office said. A member of one of Germany's most distinguished aristocratic families, von Weizsaecker also presided over the reunification of East and West Germany in 1990, 11 months after the fall of the Berlin Wall. He was most remembered for a speech in May 1985 marking the 40th anniversary of the end of World War Two in which he urged Germans to come to terms with responsibility for the Holocaust. #Business #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Latin America #author #Holocaust

French National Front's J-M Le Pen in new anti-Semitism row

PARIS (Reuters) - Jean-Marie Le Pen, honorary president of France's National Front (FN), has plunged the party into hot water over new allegations of anti-Semitism only weeks after a stunning poll victory won in part by playing down some old far-right stands. Le Pen drew criticism from Jewish groups and even some prominent members of his own party at the weekend for a quip about a French Jewish singer that appeared to include an implied reference to concentration camp ovens used in the Holocaust #Business #United States #China #Brazil #Technology #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #european #Holocaust #opinion
