The district court in Itzehoe, Schleswig-Holstein, has sentenced a former secretary of the Nazi concentration camp (KZ) Stutthof to a youth sentence of two years on probation.

The court found Irmgard Furchner, now 97, guilty on Tuesday of thousands of counts of aiding and abetting murder.

According to the indictment, Furchner worked as a shorthand typist for the commander of the Stutthof concentration camp from 1943 to 1945.

She was between 18 and 19 years old at the time.
