Germany: former Nazi guard, 101, jailed for aiding murder

BERLIN (AP) — A 101-year-old man was convicted in Germany of more than 3,500 counts of accessory to murder on Tuesday for serving at the Nazis’ Sachsenhausen concentration camp during World War II.

The Neuruppin Regional Court sentenced him to five years in prison.

The man, who was identified by local media as Josef S., had denied working as an SS guard at the camp and aiding and abetting the murder of thousands of prisoners.

In the trial, which opened in October, the centenarian said that he had worked as a farm laborer near Pasewalk in northeastern Germany during the period in question.

5. I checked to see what he was up to

tbh, I was hoping he had kicked the bucket and began his one-way ticket to Hell
But, sadly no, he's still alive at 83

3. As long as he...

Dies behind bars, I'm good with it. It's probably more horrifying for him now which I find fitting.

I hope the -45 kkklan take note, there is no hiding place, you will be found.

10. 5 years seems short if he outlives it, for being an accessory to 3,500 murders.

I hope he’s denied creature comforts.
