via: BBC.com date: 16 Apr, 2018 Ex-Auschwitz SS guard charged in Germany German prosecutors have charged a 94-year-old former SS guard with aiding and abetting mass murder at the Nazis' Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. The case against the yet-to-be-named German man has gone to a court in Mannheim, western Germany. It is alleged that when he was 19 when, in December 1942-January 1943, he assisted in the murder of some 13,335 people. I'm not sure how I feel about these sorts of prosecution at this late stage. The prosecutors must know the defendant will likely pass prior to any verdict. I get the arguments that justice should never rest, but maybe this is a few decades too late to matter?
