Holocaust survivor criticises trial of former Nazi guard

A Holocaust survivor has told PM that the trial of man who worked as a Nazi SS guard at Auschwitz is "more an act of vengeance than an act of justice".

Iby Knill said she wanted to know if 94-year-old Reinhold Hanning had taken "any action to redeem what he had done."

Prosecutors claim Mr Hanning was implicated in the murder of at least 170,000 people.
