Friedrich Karl Berger, a former Nazi concentration camp guard in Neuengamme, was stripped of his US citizenship and deported to Germany. The man is 95 years old. The United States Department of Justice said that this step is a guarantee that participants in crimes against humanity will not hide in the country.
Berger admitted in court that he worked in a concentration camp during World War II. His task was to ensure that the prisoners did not run away during work. In 1959, the Nazi left Germany and moved to Canada and then to the United States. At home, Berger awaits trial. The age of the offender and the statute of limitations do not matter in this case. In early February, a 100-year-old Nazi was charged in Germany.
