A 91-year-old woman has been charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder over claims she worked at the Auschwitz death camp.
German prosecutors say the woman, who has not been named, was a member of the Nazi SS and worked as a radio operator at the complex in 1944.
Officials say she can be held accountable for the deaths because of her role.
The charges follow the conviction of 94-year-old Oskar Groening, the so-called 'Bookkeeper of Auschwitz', who was found guilty of being an accessory to the murder of 300,000 people. He was sentenced to four years in prison.

A German Cup tie between third tier VfL Osnabrueck and RB Leipzig was abandoned in the 71st minute after the referee was struck by a lighter thrown from a section of the home crowd.
Hosts Osnabrueck were leading their second-tier opponents 1-0 when referee Martin Petersen was hit on the head by the lighter.
Petersen did not appear seriously hurt but sent the teams to the dressing rooms.
The German football federation immediately launched an investigation.
The bus of German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin has been shot at on the eve of a cup match.
The club tweeted two pictures of the windscreen but said no one was injured in the incident.
Arminia Bielefeld, who Hertha Berlin are due to play on Monday night, also tweeted their shock at the attack.
Eva Mozes Kor, an Auschwitz survivor who has forgiven the Nazis, has said she is "disappointed" that Oskar Groening has been sentenced to imprisonment.
She said: "He has accepted responsibility and admitted his guilt. They are trying to teach a lesson that if you commit such a crime, you will be punished. But I do not think the court has acted properly in sentencing him to four years in jail. It is too late for that kind of sentence."
She went on: "My preference would have been to sentence him to community service by speaking out against neo-Nazis. I would like the court to prove to me, a survivor, how four years in jail will benefit anybody. Groening said in his statements that he was wrong, it never should have happened, and it should never happen again.
"The reason I am speaking out is because so many survivors are still suffering emotionally, 70 years later, and they do not understand they have the power and the right to forgive."
