93-Year-Old Former Auschwitz Guard in Court

A former guard at the Auschwitz concentration camp arrived in a German court Tuesday.

Ninety-three-year-old Oskar Groening is accused of 300,000 counts of accessory to murder.

Groening doesn’t deny working as a guard but does say he did not commit any crimes.

Tuesday’s trial is the first to test a new line of German legal reasoning that started a wave of investigations of Nazi war crime suspects.

There are 11 open investigations against former guards.

Charges have been filed in three of those cases.
