Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust concentration camp in Poland

The trial began Tuesday in Germany for a former SS guard who served at the Stutthof concentration camp east of Danzig – today known as the Polish city of Gdansk – from June 1942 to approximately September 1944.

Prosecutors have charged 94-year-old Johann Rehbogen with being an accessory to the murders of hundreds of Jews at the camp.

Rehbogen, a former enlisted man, has admitted serving at Stutthof, but says he was unaware of the murders.

No specific evidence exists to link him to any of the deaths, hence the charges as an accessory.
