A suspected former Nazi guard who acted as a witness in the trial of John Demjanjuk may be prosecuted for war crimes.
According to Spiegel news magazine German prosecutors are considering charging “Alex N” for involvement in killing Jewish prisoners at Treblinka concentration camp during the Holocaust.
The 93-year-old was born in the Ukraine but gained German citizenship in 1991.
Researchers investigating the case said other camp guards called having heard Alex N boast about shooting Jews.
