Edit: The situation definitely did not occur at Ohrdruf, but rather Gardelegen.

98-year-old charged with 'unlawful execution, torture' of Jews during World War II

Prosecutors on Tuesday charged a 98-year-old who features on Nazi-hunting Simon Wiesenthal Center’s wanted list with war crimes, saying he had helped to deport Jews to Auschwitz in World War II.

Laszlo Csatary was found guilty in absentia in 1948 of whipping or torturing Jews and helping to deport them to the death camp while serving as police commander in the Nazi-occupied eastern Slovak city of Kosice in 1944.

The Hungarian was sentenced to death and lived on the run for decades until Hungarian authorities detained him and put him under house arrest in Budapest in July last year. He has denied any guilt.
