Female radio operator, 91, charged over 'role' in 260,000 Auschwitz deaths

A 91-year-old woman alleged to have worked at the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz has been charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder, German prosecutors say.

A spokesman said the former SS member is accused of serving as a radio operator for the camp commandant.

It is argued she can be charged because she helped the death camp function.

A former Nazi SS sergeant at Auschwitz, Oskar Groening, was convicted on that reasoning in July.

A spokesman for prosecutors in the state of Schleswig-Holstein said on Monday there was no indication the woman was unfit for trial. It's thought a decision on whether to proceed with the case will be made next year.

Separately, on Friday a court in western Germany said it was waiting to hear if a 93-year-old former Auschwitz guard was fit enough to stand trial.
