Found guilty

15 Jul, 2015

Groening is convicted of being an accessory to the murder of 300,000 people in Auschwitz. He is sentenced to four years in jail, beyond the three year sentence sought by the prosecution. World Jewish Congress President Lauder:

Mr Groening was only a small cog in the Nazi death machine, but without the actions of people like him, the mass murder of millions of Jews and others would not have been possible.
