Former Nazi SS member convicted of Dutch murders
A German court has sentenced an 88-year-old former member of the Nazi SS to life in prison for the murder of three Dutch civilians in 1944. Heinrich Boere had told the court in Aachen that he killed a bicycle shop owner, a pharmacist and a member of the resistance as part of a death squad. But he said he was following orders and would have been shot for not doing so.
