Former Nazi medic to face trial for assisting functioning of death camp

A former Nazi medic will go on trial on 3,681 counts of accessory to murder, reports the BBC.

Hubert Zafke is accused of working as a medic in Auschwitz in a SS hospital and being tried for helping the death camp function.

Zafke’s lawyers argue that Mr Zafke did nothing criminal whilst working at Auschwitz.

Last year courts sentenced Oskar Groening 94 to four years in jail as an accessory to the murder of at least 300,000 people at Auschwitz. HE was allegedly responsible for counting banknotes confiscated from prisoners.
