[Report by Bart Funnekotter: "War Crimes: Nazi Assassin Goes on Trial in Germany"]
Heinrich Boere, 88, a former member of Hitler's SS, goes on trial in a German court on Wednesday [ 28 October] charged with murdering three Dutch citizens during World War II. It will be one of the last Nazi war crimes prosecutions, along with next month's trial of John Demjanjuk.
Nazi hunter Ulrich Maass is a satisfied man. The assassin he has been chasing for years is going to stand trial at last. In the western German city of Aachen on Wednesday, Maass, a German state prosecutor from the city of Dortmund, will deliver his opening arguments in what will probably be the last trial against a Dutch war criminal from World War II, and one of the last Nazi war crimes trials.
