The title of my blog post comes from a line in a news article, which you can read in full at http://www.dw.com/en/prosecutors-demand-six-years-for-former-auschwitz-guard/a-19273851
The following quote is from the news article, cited above:
The court heard how [German] guards were aware of the exterminations taking place at Auschwitz, and how one of the guards’ duties was to ensure prisoners did not leave the camp alive.
German state prosecutors have asked judges to sentence a former Nazi guard to six years in prison. Reinhold Hanning, now 94, is accused of complicity in the murder of at least 100,000 prisoners in the concentration camp.
Obviously, Reinold Hanning failed in his duties at Auschwitz. His duty was to insure that no one left the Auschwitz camp alive. There are thousands of Holocaust survivors still alive today, so Hanning did not do his job properly.
The problem is that Reinhold Hanning is a nice old man, who is trying his best to placate the Jews, but his best isn’t good enough.
If Hanning goes to prison for six years, he will never see the light of day again. He’s 94 now and will be 100 when he gets out. However, I believe that he will serve out his time in a nursing home. There will be other German criminals in the nursing home with him and they can talk about the Jews that they sent to the gas chamber, and the ones who got away and are now sending old men to prison.
The following quote is also from the news article:
The case is based on complaints from 40 plaintiffs from Hungary, Israel, Canada, Britain, the US and Germany. Hanning is accused of facilitating the deaths of at least 100,000 people during his time as a guard at the camp.
Roughly 1 million people, most of them Jews, are believed to have died at the Auschwitz camp, set up in German-occupied Poland by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime. The victims typically died either of starvation or in gas chambers.
Where was his real mother? No one could steer Hanning right, but Mama tried, Mama tried. [lyrics of an old song]
The quote from the news article continues with this:
During the hearing, which began in February last year, the 94-year-old admitted that he was an SS guard at Auschwitz and knew about the mass murders which were taking place there. During this admission, Hanning also expressed shame and asked for forgiveness.
Good luck with getting forgiveness from the Jews! The motto of the Jews is “Never forgive, never forget.”
Were there really homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz? Yes, you had better believe it if you don’t want to go to prison for the crime of Holocaust denial.
