Former Nazi guard deported

March 20, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A former guard at a Nazi concentration camp was deported from Racine to Austria, despite objections from his lawyer that the guard was simply present at the camp and that he committed no acts of persecution.

Prosecutors said Josias Kumpf, now 83, was a guard at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany, the Trawniki labor camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, and slave labor sites in occupied France.

U.S. investigators alleged that in 1943 he helped shoot 8,000 Jews in Trawniki in a single day.
