 German prosecutors have charged a 91-year-old woman with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder over allegations she was a member of the Nazi SS who served in the Auschwitz death camp complex.

Schleswig-Holstein prosecutors’ spokesman Heinz Doellel said the woman, whose name was not disclosed due to German privacy laws, is alleged to have served as a radio operator for the camp commandant from April to July 1944.

Prosecutors argue that she can be charged as an accessory because she helped the death camp function.

A 94-year-old former SS sergeant at Auschwitz was convicted on the same reasoning earlier this year.

Mr Doellel says there are no indications the woman is unfit for trial, though a court likely won’t decide on whether to proceed with the case until next year.

The woman, believed to be a member of the SS, was a radio operator for the camp commandant.

    I dunno…. A radio operator at the camp…. Seems rash. I mean what about the dish washer in the officers mess…maybe never had contact with a camp prisoner. There must be a line…no? I’m all for executing every last one alive, if they had anything to do with the suffering at hand. But a 95 yr old radio operator. I dunno….
