Former Auschwitz Guard Groning Awaiting Last Ever Nazi War Crimes Trial

Seen in between bars, ninety-three-year-old former Nazi Oskar Groning, a guard of the SS in the Auschwitz concentration camp, waited for his war crimes trial in the German city of Luneburg. Groning is charged with complicity in 300,000 deaths and has been vocal about his guilt. The trial has been labeled as important for symbolic reasons, due to the fact that only 43 out of the 6,500 SS members who worked in concentration camps have ever faced trial and prosecution.
