Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

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”.
