Anton Geiser, 88, says he served Hitler against his will.
At a 2010 hearing, Geiser, of Sharon, Pa, acknowledged serving in the Nazi SS as a guard in the Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald concentration camps for which a federal judge ordered he should be deported to any country that would take him, of which one possibility was Austria.
But his lawyer Adrian Roe argued that the court should have considered that Geiser was forced to join the SS against his will as a 17-year-old…
He came to the U.S. in 1956 and was naturalized in 1962. He lived in Sharon, about 75 miles north of Pittsburgh, where he worked in a steel mill for decades and raised five children.
