Investigations are being launched into the crimes of 50 former guards of the Auschwitz- Birkenau extermination camp under suspicion of murder, reported German news website Der Westen.


The case is under investigation by Germany's Central Office of the State Justice Administrations for the Investigation of National Socialist Crimes, which is officially known as Zentrale Stelle, and is reportedly based in the city of Ludwigsburg.


Kurt Schrimm, 64, who has been Chief Prosecutor in the investigation, told Der Westen that the case is unique because of the age of the suspects.
