Former secretary at Nazi death camp, 95, to stand trial for accessory to murder

(JTA) — Prosecutors in Germany have indicted a 95-year-old woman who served as a secretary to a Nazi death camp’s commander during the Holocaust.

The woman, identified under German privacy laws only as Irmgard F., is charged with complicity in the murders of 10,000 people at Stutthof, a camp in occupied Poland. She will be tried in juvenile court because she was under 21 when she worked at the camp.

The indictment against the woman, who reportedly resides in an old-age home north of Hamburg, is based on testimonies from survivors of the camps who are now living in the United States and Israel. About about 65,000 people were murdered at Stutthof.
