German police have arrested a former Nazi medic who served at the Auschwitz death camp on multiple charges of aiding and abetting murder, according to The Guardian.



The 93-year-old, who was arrested at his home near Neubrandenburg, north of Berlin, underwent a medical checkup before he faced a judge and was then taken into pre-trial detention.

The former SS member allegedly assisted in the mass murder of prisoners who arrived on eight transports from Germany, Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Slovenia in September 1944, The Guardian reports.
