German prosecutors have charged a former guard at the Majdanek death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland with accessory to the murder of at least 17,000 Jews.

The 96-year-old Frankfurt man — whose name was not released due to German privacy regulations — allegedly served as a member of the Nazi SS Death’s Head division as a perimeter guard at the death camp between August 1943 and January 1944.
