Berlin Two A German woman of trial age was arrested on Thursday hours after she failed to appear for trial on charges of aiding and abetting genocide in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II, a court spokesman said.
Irmgard Furchener is accused of contributing to the murder of 11,412 people, aged 1, while he was a typist at the Stutf concentration camp between 1mg and 155.
But in his absence, his trial could not begin in the far northern city of Itzeho.
“Defendant left his home this morning and took a taxi to an unknown location,” court spokesman Frederick Milhofer said.
An arrest warrant has been issued, the spokesman said. Itzho is about 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the Danish border.
Milhaffer later confirmed that Furchner had been detained and that a doctor was now evaluating whether his health would allow him to remain in prison.
He said the next hearing is scheduled for October 1.
Lawyers were scattered around the temporary courtroom which was manipulated in a nearby industry park due to the huge interest of the media. But Furner’s chair, marked with his name tag, remained empty.
The charges cannot be read until Furcher, who is facing trial in juvenile court due to his young age at the time of the alleged crime, appears in court in person.
He is the latest non-generic to be charged with Holocaust crimes as prosecutors rush to use the ultimate opportunity for justice for the victims of the worst genocide in history.
Although prosecutors convicted the main culprits যারা who issued the order or pulled the trigger “the” Frankfurt Auschwitz trial “in the 1960s, the practice was left alone to lower-level suspects until 2000.
According to Der Spiegel, Furchner copied his death sentence from Camp Commandant Paul-Warner Hopp, who was convicted in 1955 of the murder-related crime. The newspaper reported that Furchana had appealed to the judge in absentia-a legal impossibility in Germany.
Oscar Groning, known as “Auschwitz’s accountant” for recording valuables seized from exiles while in exile, was sentenced in 2016 to four years in prison for murder, although he died before his sentence could begin.
Bruno D., last year, aged aged, was convicted of inciting the murder of 5,230 people as a guard in Stuttgart. Despite his age, he was tried in a youth court because he was still a teenager at the time of the crime.
Between 1939 and 1945, near Gdansk in present-day Poland, about 65,000 people died in concentration camps, starving and diseased, or engulfed in Nazi warfare, including prisoners of war and Jews in the camp’s gas chambers.
