A 91-year-old woman alleged to have worked at the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz has been charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder, German prosecutors say.
A spokesman said the former SS member is accused of serving as a radio operator for the camp commandant.
It is argued she can be charged because she helped the death camp function.
A former Nazi SS sergeant at Auschwitz, Oskar Groening, was convicted on that reasoning in July.
