Begin quote

A German court on Friday convicted a former SS guard for complicity in the mass murders at the Nazi-run Auschwitz death camp, capping what is expected to be one of the last Holocaust trials.

More than 70 years after the Second World War, Reinhold Hanning, 94, was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment over his role at the Nazi-run camp in occupied Poland.

“The accused is sentenced to five years’ jail for accessory to murder in 170,000 cases,” ruled the court in the western German city of Detmold.

“He was aware that in Auschwitz, innocent people were murdered everyday in gas chambers.”

During the four-month trial, which involved witnesses giving harrowing accounts of the living hell they faced, prosecutors outlined how Hanning had watched over the selection of prisoners deemed fit for slave labour, and those sent to the gas chambers.

They also accused him of knowing about the regular mass shootings and the systematic starvation of prisoners.

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. Reinhold Hanning had nothing to do with the alleged gassing of the Jews, and he would not have able to stop the alleged gassing of the Jews. He was a lowly guard at Auschwitz-Birkenau, who had no power to kill anyone.
