Former concentration camp guard released from jail

Some 200,000 people, including about 70,000 Jews, died at Majdanek.

Ryan, whose maiden name was Braunsteiner, had fled to the United States after the war and married an American.

In 1975, she was extradited to Germany.

Ryan, now 76, was released Sunday from the prison hospital, where she had been since 1990.

According to German law, after a prisoner has served 15 years, the court must examine whether there are any grounds for parole.
