German prosecutors have charged a 91 year old woman with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder over allegations she was a member of the Nazi SS who served in Auschwitz death camps, reports the Independent.
The woman, whose name was not disclosed, is alleged to have served as a radio operator for the camp commandant form April to July 1944.
German prosecutors argue that she can be charged as an accessory to war crimes because she helped with the functioning of the death camp.
