Former SS member Heinrich Boere was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for killing three civilians in Nazi-occupied Holland. Boere, 88, had admitted to the district court in Aachen, Germany, that he shot the three in 1944, but insisted he was following military orders and could have faced imprisonment in a concentration camp or the death penalty if he refused.
