Former Auschwitz guard “needs to be brougt to trial, even if he passes away…”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:59 am

The title of my blog post today is a quote from Serita Gochal, whose parents and in-laws were Holocaust survivors, according to a news article and video which you can see here.

On the video, Serita can be heard saying: “even if he [Johann Breyer] passes away, he still needs to be brought to trial.”

It is not clear whether Serita thinks that he should be tried in absentia “even if he passes away” or if she wants his dead body to be brought into court and propped up for a trial.

In the video, it is said that Breyer “admits to being a former Nazi and SS guard” at Auschwitz. In that case, of course he is guilty of a war crime. After Word War II was over, the Allies created a new law, called “common design” or “common plan” which made it a crime for any person to be associated with a German concentration camp in any way.

The photo above shows a guard tower that has been added recently at the former Auschwitz-Birkeanu camp.  There is no way to get into the guard tower, because it is a fake tower. Notice the barbed wire fence in the background.

You can read about the “Dachau trials,” conducted by the American Military Tribunal, after World War II, in which the ex-post-facto “common plan” law was used, on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauTrials/Introduction.html

In the video, in which 89-year-old Johann Breyer is accused of “aiding and abetting” the murder of the Jews at Auschwitz, it is stated that, as a guard, Breyer, “along with all the other guards, made it possible” to kill the Jews.  Of course, Breyer is guilty of mass murder because if he had not been a guard at Auschwitz, the Jews could have escaped.

Johann Breyer should have cut the wires in the fence, shown in the photo above, so that the Jews could have escaped from Auschwitz-Birkenau. If Breyer had done that, he would have been put on trail by the Germans and probably shot, but at least he would not have been a “war criminal” for not allowing the Jews to escape.

In the video, it is stated that Breyer is guilty of aiding in the murder of 200,000 to 300,000 Jews. What about the other 700,000 or 600,000 Jews, who were murdered at Auschwitz? Why isn’t Breyer guilty of aiding in those murders?

It is pointed out in the video that there were 158 TRAIN LOADS of Jews brought to Auschwitz.  Yet Breyer is only guilty of aiding in the murder of 200,000 to 300,000 Jews?  If he was there, he is guilty of the murder of 900,000 Jews at Auschwitz. That’s the law!

It is not clear, in the news article, whether Serita Gochal’s parents and in-laws were survivors of Auschwitz, or some other camp. They could have been prominent Jews in the Star camp at Bergen-Belsen, and that’s how they survived.  But it doesn’t matter: “even if [Breyer] passes away, he still needs to be brought to trial.”

I previously blogged here about Jewish revenge and the trial of John Demjanjuk, who was brought into a German court on a stretcher, and tried under the “common plan” ex-post-facto law.  God forbid that Johann Breyer should be given a pass, just because he is 89 years old, and close to death.

REVENGE, REVENGE, REVENGE. That is the law of the Jews!

  2. Hi, this might seem a daft question and I don’t mean any offence but why would they be erecting Fake guard towers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Why give tourists the wrong impression about the place, why add things that wasn’t there, they want people to know the truth but adding things that wasn’t there at the time doesn’t help their cause, surely it might just make people wonder what else has been exaggerated about what was there at the time and what wasn’t

      Exactly. Come on, surely you can see that’s a fake tower.

      Anyway, if you don’t believe anything, they conveniently have laws to silence and imprison you.

      Does that answer your question?

    • Hi, this might seem a daft question and I don’t mean any offence but why would they be erecting Fake guard towers at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

      Because they saw them on Hogan’s Heroes, and decided there ought to be some at Birkenau. And they know no one will question it.

      Of course the tower shown is, in its own way, laughable. Shoddy. It reminds me of travelling thru Poland by train (which looks very second-worldish, as does most of the former East Germany), and seeing the ad hoc additions many Poles were working on for their houses. So amateurish-looking — the new construction, which looked like it was done on weekends, a few bricks at a time, typically looked nothing like what was already there, and often plastic covering flapped in the wind. Anyway, the silly fake guard tower reminded me of that — shoddy, amateurish.

  4. A promising on-line new Holocaust museum has been launched: http://holocausthoaxmuseum.com/ The big news this week in the whacky world of Holocaustianity the the cancellation of a lecture in London by Treblinka “death camp” forensics archeologist Caroline Sturdy Colls. Help keep her corralled with a donation to this vital virtual museum.

  5. Johann Breyer was 18 when he was assigned as a guard at Buchenwald and then Auschwitz. The reinterpretation of the law in the Bundesrepublik came in 2011 after the trial of John Demjanjuk. Prior to that at least some evidence or eye witness statement was needed to jail someone as a ” war criminal” . After 70 years there are no reliable living eye witnesses which thereby threatened the continuation of the show trials . Consequently we have to prove merely the presence of said individual at a ” death camp ” . This is of course highly controversial as there are some at the Wiesenthal centre who claim that all camps were ” death camps ” .
    Logically they should also go for all the train drivers , police and civil servants as well as all military personel because ” they all knew ” and it was ” common purpose”.

    • The law of “common plan” or “common design,” applies to all the Nazi camps, not just the “death camps.” The personnel at the Dachau camp were tried, on this charge, by the American Military Tribunal after the war.

      I wrote about the “common design” charge on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/12/07/94-year-old-former-ss-soldier-who-worked-as-a-cook-in-a-concentration-camp-will-not-be-put-on-trial/

      • The application by the US military court of the principal of ” common purpose ” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_purpose
        at the Dachau trials was arbitrary and was not adopted by the Bundesrepublik wholesale after 1950 otherwise the 8000 German staff at Auschwitz would have been incarcerated instead of the tens where some very flimsy evidence could be found for misdemeanors. This changed in 2011 with the Demjanjuk case where ” common purpose” could now be adopted by the legal authorities . This was welcomed for two reasons firstly it enabled the show trials to carry on, and as there were now so few living it wouldn’t unnecessarily burden the courts or the prisons.
        The problem is that the authorities have been hoist by their own petard. The invented concept of ” death camps” and “labour camps” restricted the BRD authorities to look at staff at Auschwitz or the Reinhard camps only. Only the 50 guards alive who worked at Auschwitz are being judicially pursued . It will take another legal judgement to enable extension of this to more people eg the living guards at Belsen, Dachau etc. This might come in the future , after all the show must go on.

        • Only 50 guards, who worked at Auschwitz, still alive? Yet, there are hundreds of Jewish survivors of Auschwitz, still alive, writing books and teaching children about the Holocaust. They all have their unique story of why they weren’t gassed.

          Are there some guards, still alive, who are not being pursued? Maybe some men that bravely walked into a gas chamber and pulled their favorite Jew out, in the nick of time.

        • I read the Wikipedia article, which says: “The doctrine of common purpose, common design, joint enterprise, or joint criminal enterprise is a legal doctrine in some common law jurisdictions that imputes criminal liability on the participants to a criminal enterprise for all that results from that enterprise.”

          The difference between this law and the law of “common plan” or “common design,” which was used by the American Military Tribunal, is that the German concentration camps were not “a criminal enterprise.”

          Eisenhower referred to the German camps as “internment camps” which was the same term used in America for the camps where German-Americans, and German citizens, who had been kidnapped in South America, were held.

          Another difference is that the law of “common purpose” is a law that is made BEFORE the crime is committed. The law of “common design” was made, by another country, AFTER the concentration camps were liberated; the perpetrators did not know that they were committing a crime by working in a concentration camp, until long after the camps had been closed.

  6. How the hell would a guard GET UP INTO that fake guard tower? Or back down, of course, to stand trial? Maybe the real guard towers (if any) weren’t like that. Maybe the other stuff wasn’t like that either.

    Comment by Jett Rucker — June 19, 2014 @ 9:33 am

    • There are NO guard towers shown in the old photos of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Several fake guard towers were put up, for the benefit of tourists, long after Auschwitz-Birkenau ceased to be a camp. I wrote a blog post at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/03/08/new-book-of-photos-shows-auschwitz-then-and-now/ in which I showed that the guard towers were NOT there when the camp was in operation.

      I mentioned the guard towers in my latest post to show what the guards SHOULD have done, to avoid being put on trial at the age of 89, or after they are dead.
