Oskar Groening has been charged with 300,000 counts of accessory to murder for his two and half years working as a guard at Auschwitz. Groening, 93, has spoken openly about his experiences at the Nazi death camp. In 2005, he recalled to Der Spiegel, “I saw another SS soldier grab the baby by the legs. He smashed the baby’s head against the iron side of a truck until it was silent.” Groening was responsible for taking the possessions of those imprisoned at Auschwitz. “He helped the Nazi regime benefit economically, and supported the systematic killings,” state prosecutors in Hanover, Germany, said. Groening is the fourth Holocaust-related cases to be investigated by the city. More than 1 million people were estimated to have been killed at Auschwitz alone.
