Nazi charged


Recommended Posts


German prosecutors have charged a 95 year old woman with complicity in the murders of 10,000 people at the former Nazi concentration camp Stutthof where she had worked as a secretary.


The woman is accused of "having assisted those responsible at the camp in the systematic killing of Jewish prisoners, Polish partisans and Soviet Russian prisoners of war," prosecutors said in a statement.


The case is a rare one for German prosecutors, who in recent years have taken a number of former concentration camp guards and accountants to court. Secretaries and female staff members have not faced charges in years.


Germany has been racing to prosecute surviving former staff of Nazi concentration camps, as the number of witnesses and alleged perpetrators dwindles.
