A French court dismissed criminal charges against a former German doctor at the Auschwitz death camp. The court ruled that 89-year-old Hans Munch is too old to be tried for inciting racial hatred. Several organizations filed suit against Munch for an interview he gave last October in which, among other things, he praised the working conditions at Auschwitz. He also spoke well of his former boss, Dr. Josef Mengele, known as the “Angel of Death.”
