A German court convicted a former Nazi SS guard of beating to death a Jewish inmate during World War II and sentenced him to life in prison. Anton Malloth, who was a guard at the Theresienstadt transit camp in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, also was found guilty of attempted murder in the shooting of another prisoner who hid a cauliflower under his jacket during forced harvest work in 1943.
