Trial of former SS man Reinhold Hanning will proceed according to precedent

One of my German American relatives was named Reinhold, the same name as the notorious war criminal Reinhold Hanning.

My relative, Reinhold, was fond of joking and kidding around — so I can relate.  If my German ancestors had not come to America around 1850, one of my relatives could have been a war criminal.

The current rule is that, if you were anywhere near the place where a Jew died of any cause, during World War II, you are a war criminal, and no one will have pity on you just because you are 94 years old.

The following quote is from a recent news article:

BERLIN (AP) — A 94-year-old former SS guard [Reinhold Hanning] at the Auschwitz [Birkenau] death camp is going on trial this week on 170,000 counts of accessory to murder, the first of up to four cases being brought to court this year in an 11th-hour push by German prosecutors to punish Nazi war crimes.

Reinhold Hanning is accused of serving as an SS Unterscharfuehrer — similar to a sergeant — in Auschwitz [Birkenau] from January 1943 to June 1944, a time when hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were brought to the camp in cattle cars and were gassed to death.

The photo below was used to illustrate the gassing of the Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau.  Children under the age of 15 were immediately gassed, except for these few who were saved for a photo opportunity after the camp was liberated by Soviet soldiers on Jan. 27, 1945. The photo is  still shot from a movie shot by the Soviet liberators.

I have begged and pleaded with Holocaust True Believers not to use photos like the one above, which disproves the Holocaust.  Children under the age of 15 were automatically gassed, according to the Holocaust story — except for these children who were not gassed, for some unknown reason.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Hanning’s attorney, Johannes Salmen, says that his client acknowledges serving at the Auschwitz I part of the camp complex in Nazi-occupied Poland, but denies serving at the Auschwitz II-Birkenau section, where most of the 1.1 million victims were killed. [Auschwitz I was not a death camp]

Prosecutor Andreas Brendel told The Associated Press, however, that guards in the main camp were also used as on-call guards to augment those in Birkenau when trainloads of Jews were brought in.

“We believe that these auxiliaries were used in particular during the so-called Hungarian action in support of Birkenau,” he said.

So the prosecutor “believes” that Reinhold might have been used as an auxiliary during the Hungarian action.  Could that be Reinhold on the right in the photo below?

You can read about the Hungarian Jews on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/HungarianJews.html

Most of the survivors, who are still alive today, are Hungarian Jews who were not gassed upon arrival. They were allowed to live so that they could testify against a 94 year old man who might have been standing beside the train when they arrived.  This is why the Jews have been hated since the beginning of time and why they will continue to be hated until the end of time.
