The Neuruppin District Court has admitted charges of aiding and abetting murder in 3,500 cases, and the trial is expected to begin in October. The accused should be able to stand trial for 2 to 2.5 hours a day, a court spokesperson told the newspaper.

The court was unavailable for comment this weekend.

The accused, who was not named in accordance with German suspects media laws, is said to have worked as a camp warden from 1942 to 1945 in Sachsenhausen, where around 200,000 people were imprisoned and 20,000 murdered.

As the number of Nazi crime suspects declines, prosecutors are still trying to bring the individuals to justice. A landmark conviction in 2011 paved the way for more prosecutions, as for the first time working in a concentration camp was ground for guilt without proof of a specific crime.
