Johannes Heesters in Dachau 1941

This is making the rounds a bit in Germany currently: Dutch singer Johannes Heesters, now aged 105, has taken Berlin author Volker Kühn to court. Mr Kühn is claiming that Heesters performed for the SS at Dachau concentration camp in 1941. Heesters admits that he did visit the concentration camp (as is documented in photographs), but claims that they were shown only unsuspicious and well-fed prisoners, and that he did not perform at the camp.
