Heebs strike again: 95 year old deported to Germany

The US has deported a 95-year-old former guard at a Nazi concentration camp to Germany.

Friedrich Karl Berger, who has lived in the US since 1959, was flown out of the country on Saturday and has landed in Frankfurt.

Mr Berger has admitted working as a guard at the Neuengamme concentration camp but said he did not witness any killings or abuse of prisoners.

German prosecutors have dropped their case against him for lack of evidence.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Mr Berger said he had been forced to work in the camp, spent a short time there and carried no weapon.

He expressed astonishment at his looming deportation, saying "after 75 years, this is ridiculous. I cannot believe it. You're forcing me out of my home."

See me yet?
