Ex-Auschwitz guard, willing henchman in Holocaust, convicted in Germany | Reuters

DETMOLD, Germany A 94-year-old former Auschwitz guard was sentenced to jail in Germany on Friday by a judge who branded him a "willing and efficient henchman" in the Holocaust. In what is likely to be one of Germany's last trials for World War Two-era atrocities, Reinhold Hanning was convicted of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people at the concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Rejecting the defence argument that the former SS officer had never killed, beaten or abused anyone himself, Judge Anke Grudda said Hanning had chosen to serve in the notorious death camp and had helped it run. #Europe #Israel #markets #Crime #Holocaust #article #Judaism

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
