German prosecutors are investigating claims that a 93-year-old woman served as a Nazi SS guard during World War II.
Hilde Michnia has also also accused of being involved in forcing prisoners on a march during which about 1,400 women died.
Hamburg prosecutors' spokesman Carsten Rinio said his office had begun the investigation of Michnia last week after a private citizen had filed a complaint against her as allowed under German law.
She is suspected of serving as a guard in the Bergen-Belsen and Gross-Rosen concentration camps.
Michnia told German newspaper Die Welt she had not been involved in any atrocities and only worked in the kitchens.
