After 75 years of hunting, we’ve finally caught him.
Now it’s time for him to pay for his crimes.
German prosecutors have charged a 100-year-old former SS concentration camp guard with aiding and abetting the murder of 3,518 people.
The man is charged with “knowingly and willfully” aiding and abetting the murder of prisoners at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, north of Berlin, from January 1942 to February 1945, according to the prosecutor’s office in Neuruppin, Brandenburg.
The man’s name has not been released, in accordance with Germany’s privacy laws.
The charges include involvement in the shooting of Soviet prisoners of war in 1942, and aiding and abetting the murder of prisoners through the use of the poison gas Zyklon B, as well as other shootings and the killing of prisoners by creating and maintaining hostile conditions in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
Sachsenhausen was established in 1936. Of the roughly 200,000 prisoners who passed through it, around 100,000 are thought to have died there. During World War II, the camp’s inmate population fluctuated between about 11,000 and 48,000 people.
The prosecution considers the man fit to stand trial despite his advanced age, Cyrill Klement, the Neuruppin court’s senior prosecutor, told CNN.
Klement told CNN that the Neuruppin Regional Court consulted with a forensic psychiatrist and found the man able to attend the trial, though only for a few hours a day, with breaks.
The court is now considering whether to go ahead with the trial. The defendant first has the opportunity to respond to the indictment.
You might think it is sadistic to hunt down a 100-year-old man and charge him with crimes he supposedly committed 75 years ago, without providing any evidence.
However, the truly sadistic thing is to masturbate Jews to death, to use pedal-powered brain-bashing machines against the Jews, to electrocute them on electrified floors, and to put them in a cage with an eagle and a bear and let the bear rip them apart and the eagle pick their bones. What is truly sadistic is to then cut out their eyeballs and build a wall of eyes, to use their fat to make soap, and to make lampshades from their skin.
Those are the real crimes, that really happened, in real life.
Bringing a 100-year-old man to trial for being a guard during a war that ended 75 years ago – that is pure and unadulterated JUSTICE.
This is totally and completely normal behavior for a government.
Anyone who thinks this isn’t normal behavior for a government belongs in prison.
Hopefully, the German government is watching closely in the comments sections of articles, and finding anyone who says something like “this seems a little bit extreme,” and swooping on them. Those who would feel bad for 100-year-old Nazis are no better than the gassers themselves.
