Reinhold Hanning, Auschwitz guard, goes on trial Thursday

Proceedings will be limited to 2 hours per day in deference to Hanning's age

A 94-year-old former SS guard at the Auschwitz death camp goes on trial Thursday on 170,000 counts of accessory to murder, the first of up to four cases being brought to court this year in an 11th-hour push by German prosecutors to punish Nazi war crimes.
