MONSTER AND CRITICS: Bonn, Germany – Police are investigating a claim that an 89-year-old German accused of Nazi war crimes may have been killed by being left in the cold, news weekly Focus reported on Sunday.

Samuel Kunz died in November, shortly before he was to go on trial on 10 counts of murder and one count of being an accessory to 430,000 murders at Belzec death camp during the Second World War. Court officials said at the time they were told he died of heart failure.

Focus said a post-mortem showed that Kunz, a former member of the SS Nazi force, had in fact died of exposure. Prosecutor Robin Fassbender in the western city of Bonn told Focus he was conducting an inquiry into the cause of death.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre in Jerusalem had placed Kunz third on its list of 10 most-wanted Nazi war criminals.

The Bonn state prosecutor confirmed to Focus magazine at the weekend that the death of Samuel Kunz was being investigated after the prosecutor received reports that his death was unnatural.

Kunz, who worked for the Federal Construction Ministry until his retirement in the Rhine-Sieg area, was charged with ten cases of murder and more than 430,000 cases of being an accessory to murder for acts committed during his time as an SS guard in the Belzec extermination camp.

Despite having not left Germany, and being the third-most wanted war criminal on the Simon Wiesenthal Centre’s list, he was only brought to trial last year.

But he died aged 89 shortly before proceedings were due to start.

Now the initial conclusion that he died of heart failure is being challenged after it emerged that the post-mortem showed he died of hypothermia. A lawyer has filed an official complaint that he died of unnatural causes, which has prompted the investigation.
