“All the killing methods as well as the disastrous living conditions of the incarcerated people at the camp,” were known by the accused, according to Germany’s prosecutor’s office.

Among these were slave labor, gassing, shooting, injections, starvation, and freezing conditions.

The prosecutor’s office of Germany was the body in charge of emitting the official communication accusing the formed guard of being an accessory to the killings.

The man, referred to as Hans H, whose full name is not being disclosed for legal reasons, was an SS agent between the years of 1944 to 1945, specifically serving as a guard at the Mauthausen death camp.

The prosecutor’s office of Germany was the body in charge of emitting the official communication accusing the formed guard of being an accessory to the killings.

This is not an isolated case, as many similar ones have taken place in the last few years, many of which have ended with a successful prosecution.

The Mauthausen camp, Austria’s largest death camp, held nearly 190,000, half of which were killed.

During this time, Hans H aided in the killing of nearly 36,233 people, allegedly ‘enemies’ of the Nazis.
