A Holocaust survivor recognises a camp guard/officer in the street years after the war

There's a scene in a film where an elderly woman (I THINK it's a woman, but can't be sure) is walking down a street (she's a Survivor of the concentration camps of the Nazis during WWII) and on the other side of the street (or maybe he walks past her on her side) she spots one of the guards or officers from the camp she was in.

This has been bugging me for a few years now. It's the only thing I can remember.

Thank you in advance to anyone who can tell me the film.

"Marathon Man"

"Attempting to determine the value of his diamonds, Szell visits an appraiser in the Diamond District in midtown Manhattan, a heavily Jewish neighborhood. A shop assistant who is also a Holocaust survivor believes he recognizes Szell as a war criminal. After Szell hurriedly leaves the shop, an elderly Jewish woman also recognizes him."

Here is the clip on Youtube:
