German court convicts 93-year-old former Nazi guard

A German court has convicted a 93-year-old former SS guard on 5,232 counts of accessory to murder on Thursday

Bruno Dey, 93, who served as a ss guard at the Stuthoff concentration camp during the final months of World War II, was given a two-year suspended sentence by the Hamburg state court according to the dpa news agency.

The 5,232 figure corresponds to the number of people believed to have been killed at the camp during Dey’s time there.

Dey was 17 in 1944 as at the time he began his service at Stutthof, which is located near the city of Gdansk, and his trial took place in juvenile court because of his age at the time the crime was committed.
