Nazi-era doctor accused of killing children dies

Dr. Heinrich Gross, a physician who worked at a clinic where the Nazis killed thousands of children, died on December 15, his family announced Thursday. He was 91. Gross, who was implicated in nine deaths as part of a Nazi plot to eliminate "worthless lives," had escaped trial in March after a court ruled he suffered from severe dementia. No cause of death was given in a brief statement issued by his family.
