Former Nazi concentration camp guard Bruno D. was found guilty on charges of being accessory to murder and handed a two year suspended sentence in Hamburg's regional court on Thursday.
The 93-year-old defendant was seen covering his face with a folder as he entered the courtroom on a wheelchair.
He was found guilty on 5,230 counts of accessory to murder related to his time as a guard at the Stutthof concentration camp, near Gdansk.
The court gave Bruno D. a suspended youth sentence of two years because at the time of the crimes he was no older than 18.
The nonagenarian's case has been widely recognised as potentially the last to be brought against someone involved in the Holocaust.
