Dr Moshe Kantor, the president of the European Jewish Congress, which represents Jewish organisations in 40 countries said that he welcomed today’s verdict on Oskar Groening, “and the historic significance of the trial”.

He also praised “the opportunity it provides for to educate a generation that is all too distant from the horrors of the Holocaust”.

He added: “Although more than 70 years have passed since the liberation of the Nazi death camps, this trial reminds us that there is no statute of limitations for those responsible for Nazi horrors and of the real and present danger of intolerance and demonstrates the constant need to guard against anti-Semitism, racism and hate.”
