91-Year-Old Woman Accused of Complicity In the Murders of Over 260,000 Jews


Courts in the German city of Kiel are currently deciding whether or not to put a 91-year-old woman on trial for her role in the murders of over 260,000 Jews in 1944 at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

In a report by Yahoo News, Kiel’s chief prosecutor, Heinz Dollel, said the unidentified Nazi—who worked in the camp as a telegraph officer—“was accused in connection with events between April to July 1944” during which “huge numbers of Hungarian Jews were murdered in the gas chambers.”

The courts will be “taking both the charges against her and her health into consideration.” With any luck, they will consider the “over 260,000” part most of all.
