Former Nazi guard at Auschwitz to stand trial in Germany

  • A former Nazi guard who was posted at the Auschwitz death camp will stand trial in Germany in connection with the murder of around 170,000 people. Media reports quoted prosecutors as saying that Reinhold Hanning, who is now 94-years-old, met Jewish prisoners at the Auschwitz death camp located in Poland and might have escorted some of them to the gas chambers. Hanning did admit that he was a guard at the camp but has denied his role in the killings.
