A note is shown on the door to the home of Johann “Hans” Breyer, Monday, Sept. 24, 2012, in Philadelphia. Breyer is the target of a new German investigation on allegations he served as an SS guard at the Nazis’ Auschwitz death camp, The Associated Press has learned, in a case that comes after years of unsuccessful U.S. Department of Justice attempts to have him stripped of his American citizenship and deported.
