A 96-year-old woman, Irmgard Furchner,(pic above) has been found after she failed to attend her trial for complicity in the murders of more than 11,000 people, and attempted murder of many others, prompting German authorities to issue an arrest warrant.
On Thursday, an elderly lady was found and detained by police, having fled her care home before she was supposed to go on trial for offenses allegedly committed more than 75 years ago.
With the trial approaching, the woman, Irmgard Furchner, left her care home in a taxi and went to an underground station on Thursday morning, a spokeswoman for the district court said.
The district court in Germany promptly issued an arrest warrant for a 96-year-old woman who had worked as a secretary in a Nazi death camp between 1943 and 1945, declaring her a fugitive.
She was only 18 and 19 at the time of the alleged crimes.
She was due to go on trial on Thursday on charges of complicity in murder at the Stutthof death camp, which sat on the Baltic coast in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II.
According to German media, she had previously written a letter to the presiding judge, noting that she did not want to appear in court.
It is understood that Furchner’s defense will argue that she was restricted to desk work.
