Luise Helene Elisabeth Danz (born December 11, 1917 in Walldorf (Werra), Thuringia) is a still living former Nazi concentration camp guard who was convicted of war crimes and sentenced to life imprisonment but subsequently set free.

From Wikipedia:

On January 24, 1943 at the age of 26, Luise Danz was conscripted as an Aufseherin within the Nazi concentration camp system. She served as guard in several camps, such as Plaszow, Majdanek, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Malchow. In 1943 she received an award from the Nazis for her camp service. While stationed in Malchow, she was directly responsible for the death of a young girl, among many other sadistic crimes against humanity. She also became Oberaufseherin in Malchow in January 1945 when she arrived. At the end of the war in 1945, Luise tried to quietly slip into obscurity, but was later discovered and put on trial in 1946 by the Poles for crimes that she had committed while on duty in the vast camp system. At her trial she was sentenced to life imprisonment, but was then released early in 1956. Then again, in 1996, Luise Danz was tried in a German court for the Malchow concentration camp charge, resulting in the death of the young girl. This court case is still in progress at the present time in 2005. Luise Danz, who is still alive, is 88 years old.
