Hans Lipschis once reportedly told news media that he had been part of the security detail at Auschwitz but only worked in the kitchen. Judges said through a spokesman Friday that Lipschis suffers from dementia. The case is the highest-profile Holocaust case still undecided by the courts. Lipschis lived in the United States until his Nazi links were uncovered. He was arrested last year at his German home in a last-ditch bid to convict former Nazi guards while they were still alive as accessories to murder. He was bailed out in December. The judges checking his file now say he is no longer legally competent to stand trial. Prosecutors have about 30 other elderly men and women in their sights under a new legal doctrine in Germany that has made working as an auxiliary of the Nazi SS at two death camps, Treblinka und Sobibor, sufficient to convict on murder charges. Previously, witness evidence of physical participation in a killing was needed. The judges in the Lipschis case at Ellwangen near Stuttgart in southwestern Germany said it was not settled that the doctrine applies to guards at Auschwitz. Prosecutors are considering whether to appeal the ruling. They said Lipschis was in the security detail at Auschwitz, a German extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, from 1941 to 1943 and his service there aided its objective of extermination.
