After the defendants had escaped, the Itzeho district court postponed the trial of Nazi crimes in the Stutthof concentration camp until October 19.

According to the public prosecutor's office, Irmgard F. worked in the headquarters of the German concentration camp near Danzig from June 1943 to April 1945.

As a typist and typist, she is charged with helping those responsible at the camp with the systematic killing of prisoners.

The indictment is expected to be read out on Tuesday.

According to the central office responsible for investigating Nazi crimes in Ludwigsburg, around 65,000 people died in the Stutthof concentration camp and its sub-camps, as well as on the so-called death marches at the end of the war.

On the first day of the trial, the 96-year-old left her home in Quickborn (Pinneberg district) a few hours before the start of the trial and took a taxi to Norderstedt / Hamburg-Ochsenzoll. According to media information, she was walking in Hamburg at noon when police officers noticed her.

The trial against Irmgard F. takes place before a youth chamber because the defendant was only 18 or 19 years old at the time of the crime.

The trial is considered to be one of the last Nazi trials in Germany.

Since October 7th, however, proceedings have been running before the Neuruppin district court in Brandenburg / Havel.

The 100-year-old defendant is accused of assisting the murder of several thousand people as an SS guard in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin between 1942 and 1945.

The accused, who grew up in Lithuania, denies the allegations.
