The trial of a 100-year-old former concentration camp guard, the oldest accused of Nazi crimes ever tried in the country, opens in Germany. Josef Schütz, a former master corporal in the Waffen-SS's "Totenkopf" (Death's Head) division, is on trial for "knowingly and willingly" assisting in the murder of 3,518 prisoners when he operated in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, not far from Berlin, between 1942 and 1945.
