A 93-year-old man alleged Auschwitz death camp guard has been arrested by German authorities, the Associated Press reports, citing Stuttgard prosecutors.
Hans Lipschis was taken into custody after it was concluded there was "compelling evidence" he was involved in crimes at Auschwitz while there from 1941 to 1945, prosecutor Claudia Krauth said.
Lipschis has acknowledged being assigned to an SS guard unit at the camp but maintains he only served as a cook and was not involved in any war crimes.
