Verdict in Nazi trial
A VERDICT is due in the case of a former SS officer known as the Bookkeeper of Auschwitz, expected to be one of the last trials of its kind. A German court was to rule on 94- yearold Oskar Groening last night. He is accused of 300,000 counts of accessory to murder in the cases of deported Hungarian Jews sent to the gas chambers. If convicted, he could be sentenced to 3- 15 years in prison. Groening has said he was “very sorry”.
