Germany Probes Philadelphia Man Accused of Role with Nazis

Germany is investigating an 87-year-old Philadelphia man accused of serving as an SS guard at an Auschwitz death camp, the Associated Press reports.

Although the U.S. Department of Justice has failed to deport Johann “Hans” Breyer, a retired toolmaker, on allegations he participated in the slaughter of at least 344,000 Jews at the camp, German officials are calling for his extradition, according to the AP.

The war-crimes office in Germany is recommending that Breyer be extradited and stand trail on charges that he was accessory to murder at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in occupied Poland.

An extradition would be a victory for the Justice Department, which failed for more than a decade to get Breyer deported, according to the AP.
