Former SS Nazi guard convicted in Germany’s ‘last’ Holocaust trial | DW News

Bruno D. was charged as an accessory to the crime in the Stutthof camp during the Nazi regime. In his defense, Atty. Stefan Waterkamp explained that being a camp guard had never been a crime in Germany before and that being a camp guard had no bearing on the deaths inside the camp. The nine-month trial presented the offender was only 17 when he began his service as a camp guard in August 1944 but Judge Anne Meier-Göring disagreed that he could have found a way out. With Bruno D’s declining health, the court ordered him to pay for his defense and not for the entire court case.
