Nazi hit man Heinrich Boere goes on trial Wednesday for the execution-style killings of three Dutch civilians during World War II. Boere has admitted to gunning down the three men as part of a Waffen SS death squad. They were killed in retribution for partisan attacks in Holland as the tide of World War II turned against the Nazis. But for more than six decades after the war, he managed to avoid punishment - first escaping from a prisoner of war camp in the Netherlands, then successfully eluding the courts in Germany. The 88-year-old Boere goes on trial at the state court in Aachen, charged with the murders of a bicycle-shop owner, a pharmacist and another civilian.
