The court ruled that the 93-year-old “took part in the whole mass murder, helping your commanders, watching people die of hunger, disease and entering the crematorium from which they never left. You had to see the corpses because the corpses lay everywhere.”
On the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German Stutthof concentration camp on Saturday, Polish President Andrzej Duda, Deputy PM and Culture Minister Piotr Gliński, Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz and his German counterpart Heiko Maas honoured its victims.
According to prosecutors, 93-year-old Bruno Dey was a “cog in the murderous machine” and is guilty of complicity in the murder of 5230 of the camp’s victims.
The Stutthof death camp is a warning for Europe and the world, President Andrzej Duda wrote on Monday in a letter commemorating the 80th anniversary of the first prisoner transport to the camp, sited in today's north Poland.
