GERMANY: News about one of the last of the old Nazis…It has been reported that a German federal court has rejected a former Auschwitz death-camp guard’s appeal against his conviction for being an accessory to murder, a decision greeted as setting a precedent for future prosecutions of Holocaust perpetrators. Oskar Groening, now 95, was originally convicted in July 2015 of being an accessory to the murder of 300,000 Jews and sentenced to four years in prison. The Federal Court of Justice’s decision to uphold his conviction is the first time an appeals court has ruled on a verdict obtained under the logic that simply having served at a death camp is enough to convict someone as an accessory to murders committed there.


AUSTRIA: The headline read: “robbing a bank is a lot easier when the bank is actually open.” Police in Vienna received reports of a man with a gun and with his face covered outside of a bank.
