As of November 12, 2015 Oksar Gröning is listed as Number 4 of the "World's Most Wanted Nazis", with the following description:
Known as "the bookkeeper of Auschwitz," Oskar Groening was responsible for sorting the money taken from the Jews upon their arrival at a death camp. He also sorted and kept track of the personal effects of the prisoners. Each time he witnessed atrocities at various camps, he requested a transfer, until he ended up at Auschwitz. He was then transferred to a combat unit and was taken prisoner by the British. After the war, he returned to Germany and lived an "average" life. About 40 years after the war, he decided to turn himself in for his crimes and speak out against Holocaust deniers. In September 2014, he was charged in Germany as an accessory to the murder of more than 300,000 people. He was declared fit for trial and sentenced to four years in prison at age 94.
