Germany probes former Nazi camp guards

A pile of human bones and skulls at the Nazi concentration camp of Majdanek following its liberation by Russian troops in 1944German authorities said Wednesday they were probing nearly 20 former guards at a Nazi-era concentration camp on suspicion of aiding and abetting murder. The investigation targets 18 or 19 German nationals who served at the Majdanek camp in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II, Thomas Will, prosecutor and deputy head of the German office investigating Nazi war crimes, told AFP. In a 2011 landmark case, a Munich court sentenced John Demjanjuk to five years in prison for complicity in the extermination of more than 28,000 Jews at the Sobibor camp, where he had served as a guard. For more than 60 years prior to that ruling, German courts had only prosecuted Nazi war criminals if evidence showed they had personally committed atrocities.
