Ex-Nazi death camp guard faces German court reckoning | DW News

A former Nazi camp guard, Bruno D, claimed not guilty on while on trial relating to the murder of more than 5,000 people at the Stutthof camp during World War II. The 93-year-old defendant admitted knowing about the gas chambers in the Stutthof death camp but was only assigned as a standing guard and that he never believed in the Nazi ideology. Prosecutor Lars Mahske said that the defendant provided the very definition of accessory to murder. Germany is recently focusing on concentration camp cases but is having difficulty to execute due to the advancing age and health condition of the suspects. A verdict is expected later this month and if Bruno D. will be convicted, he will face a sentence of a minimum of six months and a maximum of 10 years.
