SWC Welcomes Opening of Trial of Former Stutthof Guard
October 17, 2019
The Simon Wiesenthal Center welcomed the opening today, in Hamburg, of the trial of former Stutthof camp guard, Bruno Dey.
This is the fifth trial held in Germany under the new prosecution policy instituted by the German authorities which makes bringing Nazi war criminals to justice much easier than it has been in the past.
The Center’s Chief Nazi Hunter, Dr. Efraim Zuroff attended the trial and played an important role in the preparation of the case against Dey, finding 21 survivors of Stutthof who could serve as potential witnesses.
