Germany's top Nazi hunter to keep up chase for another decade

 Reuters 21 March 2019

Undeterred by dwindling numbers of living suspects, Germany's top Nazi hunter is determined to keep tracking down criminals involved in Hitler's murder machine for another decade. A handful of new Auschwitz-related trials are underway in Germany, but one has already stalled due to the frail health of its defendant, who is over 90. Jens Rommel tells Reuters his work is getting more difficult every year and yields only modest results. But it still matters, say victims’ relatives. (689 Words) - By Madeline Chambers

Reinhold Hanning, a 94-year-old former guard at Auschwitz, is carried on a transport chair after a break in his trial in Detmold, Germany, February 18, 2019. Hanning is accused of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people - the first of four such court cases that could be the last due to the very advanced age of the defendants. Credit: REUTERS/Bernd Thissen/Pool TPX
