PHILADELPHIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An 89-year-old Philadelphia man has been ordered to be held without bail on a German arrest warrant.

Johann Breyer is being charged with aiding and abetting in the deaths of more than 200,000 Jewish men, women and children while he was a guard at Auschwitz.

He was taken into custody Tuesday.

His attorney is arguing his client is too frail to be detained.

Breyer has admitted he was a guard at the death camp, but says he had nothing to do with the deaths.
