U.S. deports former guard at Nazi camp


A 95-year-old man who lived in Tennessee was deported to Germany on Saturday, one year after a federal judge found that he had served as an armed guard at a Nazi concentrat­ion camp where prisoners were forced to work outdoors “to the point of exhaustion and death.” The deportatio­n of the former guard, Friedrich Karl Berger, capped what could be the last prosecutio­n by the U.S. government of collaborat­ors in Nazi war crimes as most of the targets have died in the more than 75 years since the end of World War II.
