As she was under 18 when she served in Stutthof, she will face a juvenile court
A former secretary of a Nazi camp has been charged with the murders of 10,000 people, German prosecutors said on Friday.
She worked at the Stutthof camp near Gdansk in Poland, where some 65,000 inmates died, reports News Sky.
Itzehoe Prosecutors, not mentioning the name of the accused, said in a statement that they charged her with "aiding and abetting murder in more than 10,000 cases," reports CNN.
The prosecutors also said: “The accused woman, who was a minor at the time of the reported crimes, has assisted those responsible in the systematic killing of Jewish prisoners, Polish partisans and Soviet Russian prisoners of war at the camp.”
She was a stenographer and secretary to the camp commander between June 1943 and April 1945, CNN reports.
As she was under 18 when she served in Stutthof, she will face a juvenile court.
According to the Central Office for the investigation of Nazi crimes, German prosecutors are investigating 13 other cases connected to the concentration camps of Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen, Mauthausen, and Stutthof.
In summer 2020, Bruno D, a 93-year-old former guard at Stutthof, was convicted of being an accessory to thousands of murders, and given a two-year suspended prison sentence by a local court.
Bruno was also produced before a juvenile court because he was a minor at the time he served in Stutthof camp.
An estimated total of 6 million Jewish people were killed in Nazi concentration camps during World War-2, especially Roma people and people with mental or physical disabilities.
