Former Nazi SS guard charged with the murder of 3,518 people held at Sachsenhausen concentration camp

A 100-year-old man who worked as a Nazi SS guard at Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin has been charged with 3,518 counts of accessory to murder.

He worked at the camp from 1942 to 1945.

The man, only known as Josef S., says he did not know the Sachsenhausen camp.


Over 200,000 people were kept at that camp, and estimates of number of deaths range between 40,000 and 100,000. The camp was in operation from 1936 to 1945.

The prosecutor says Josef knew he was aiding and abetting by performing guard duty, an integral part of the murders.
