A German woman 91-year old will be convicted next year for working at Auschwitz


She will be tried before a juvenile court because she had still been a minor when assigned to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death complex in April 1944. According to specific circumstances two sentences were possible: a maximum of ten years jail under juvenile jurisdiction or an adult penalty on conviction of at least three years. The court should decide sometime next year on whether to proceed with the case. More than 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, were murdered at Auschwitz between 1940 and 1945. Only 50 of the 6,500 former SS members who served at Auschwitz have been convicted in , most of them in symbolic sentences with historical importance.
