A 94-year-old German ex-Nazi who’s been living in America for over 60 years will be deported following a ruling by a Tennessee immigration judge, US officials said.
Friedrich Karl Berger, who was an armed guard at a concentration camp near Meppen, Germany in 1945, was ordered on Feb. 28 to be removed from the states, government officials said. His exact deportation date — and a destination — are unclear.
The U.S. Department of Justice’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions began investigating Berger in 2017.
The Memphis immigration judge in Berger’s two-day trial found the prisoners being guarded by the ex-Nazi were subjected to barbaric conditions and forced into labor.
Berger is also accused of guarding a forced evacuation to the main camp that left 70 prisoners dead.
The former concentration camp guard, who moved to the US in 1959, is still collecting a pension from Germany. He had most recently been living in Tennessee.
