On July 28, 2010, Samuel Kunz was charged in Germany for participating in the murder of 430,000 Jews while he served as a guard at Belzec death camp in occupied Poland from January 1942 to July 1943. Kunz, 88, was named the world's third most-wanted Nazi suspect by the Simon Wiesenthal Center a few months prior to his indictment.
Kunz was living in Bonn when he was notified of the charges, which authorities became aware of as they were studying old documents from German post-wars trials about an SS training camp named Trawniki for the John Demjanjuk trial. Prosecutors allege both Kunz and Demjanjuk trained as guards at Trawniki. In the 1960s, Kunz testified about his time there in a different trial, but he was never indicted himself.
Kunz was also accused of executing 10 Jews in two other incidents.
Kunz died on November 18, 2010, in Bonn, before a trial date was set.
