97-year-old ex-secretary appeals conviction

A 97-year-old former secretary at a Nazi concentration camp in Poland during World War II has appealed her conviction.

On December 20, Irmgard Furchner was found guilty of assisting in the murder of more than 10,000 people during the Holocaust. At the same time, she was also a stenographer for an SS commander at the Nazi Stutthof camp, according to the Associated Press.

A German court sentenced her to two years of probation for 10,505 secondary crimes of murder and five attempted murders, according to news outlets.

Both defense attorneys and attorneys for the co-plaintiffs have filed an appeal in federal court, the court confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

It was unclear if and when federal court would hear the case, according to the news outlet.

The Washington Post reported that Feshner was tried in juvenile court because she was 18 and 19 years old when she worked at the camp from June 1, 1943, to April 1, 1945.
