Nazi 'Bookkeeper of Auschwitz' dies after prison sentencing


Groening was convicted and sentenced for being an accessory to murder of 300,000 Hungarian Jews at Auschwitz during World War II.

Groening, a former Auschwitz guard, was found guilty in 2015 for being an accessory to murder in hundreds of thousands of deaths at the concentration camp.

The "Bookkeeper of Auschwitz" has died aged 96 before beginning a prison sentence for his involvement in the killing hundreds of thousands of Jews.

The commission says it will consult with the attorney general's office to determine what to do next regarding the case. Her lawyers said she intends to donate between $25m and $50m to charities during her lifetime.

The Lueneburg court concluded that although there was no evidence of involvement in a specific killing, Groening knew that Jews were being slaughtered at the German death camp and supported the killings through his actions.

During his trial, Groening admitted that he was "morally complicit" in the crimes but denied that he was legally guilty.

The Saints are beginning to realize it, too, along with the reality that this negotiation isn't going as smoothly as they hoped. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported several other "QB-needy" teams reached out to Condon to kick the tires on Brees.

German news magazine Der Spiegel said there had been no formal response at the time of Groening's death.

At least 1 million people were killed at Auschwitz concerntration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Groening then filed an appeal to skirt his prison sentence due to his age and poor health.

In 2011, former OH autoworker John Demjanjuk became the first person convicted in Germany exclusively for serving as a death camp guard without evidence of being involved in a specific killing. Groening then made a plea for clemency January 15. On his first day on the ramp where Jewish prisoners exited the trains, he saw an SS colleague grab a crying baby and slam its head against a truck until it was quiet.

Zuroff pointed out that two other Nazi war criminals - John Demjanjuk, who was convicted in 2011, and Reinhold Hanning, who was convicted in 2016 - also died while awaiting decisions on their appeals. He, too, died before he could begin serving his five-year-sentence.
