The court ordered that photographs of “Irmgard Forschner” during the trial be blurred and not shown clearly

A former secretary who worked for a Nazi concentration camp commander was found guilty of complicity in the killing of more than 10,505 people.

Irmgard Forschner, 97, learned to type as a teenager at Stutthof from 1943 to 1945.

Forschner, one of the few women to be tried for Nazi crimes decades ago, was given a suspended two-year prison sentence.

Although she was a civilian worker, the judge agreed that she was fully aware of what was going on in the camp.
