The following quote is from the news article:

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.

End quote

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.

  1. All this was sadly lost in the MSM in the UK which is concentrating on the dangers of Brexit ( the UK leaving the European Union ) . The big news has been the murder of an MP by a deranged man with ” far right ” views. The authorities in Germany should have left it for a quiet news day…much more effective.

  2. There’s a few questions that pop up,every time I read about a trial. I don’t see anywhere in the article,that he was prosecuted in a military court. Yes,the SS is a defunct military unit. Some folks might say,” he had a hand in murdering civilians”. None of that matters. This all supposedly took place,”WHEN HE WAS A MILITARY MAN”. What was his rank? Enlisted or officer? All an enlisted man does,is carry out orders. If he did in fact watch over the “selection process”,he would’ve been an officer. I don’t give a shit if it’s a country in jackass flats nowhere,that how the military is structured. You’re gonna have a hard time,”legally proving” he oversaw the operation. At the end of the day,that will fall right in the lap of his CO. If you’ve never served,I’m not gonna expect you to understand that. I’d say it’s an accurate statement to say,the selection process was policy through all the prisons. So he pointed his finger. Would that make him any more or less guilty,than the soldier that actually,”pulled the prisoner out of line?” His CO gave him his orders. We had our Lt. (Who was more ignorant than mud fence) and our Staff Sargent. Our dipshit Lt. Issued orders to our Staff Sgt, who in turn gave them to us. The ultimate blame will rest with the CO. The article mentioned,”he knew about mass shootings”. I’ve said I don’t trust those who write history,however I heard it said that shootings the prisoners stopped,because they had the gas houses and a lot of the soldiers didn’t have the stomach to shoot unarmed non combatants. I’m buying into that accounting of history now,because the article mentioned mass shootings. The historical accounting and the courts accounting,conflict like a fat dog. I pulled 3 years on a 5 year felony assault conviction. I had a public defender. After a couple years locked down at my assigned unit,I was talking with our resident jail house attorney. He showed me in the laws of this state,I got f–ked. My court appointed attorney missed a few key things. Those things would’ve meant the difference between felony and misdemeanor . Did this guy have a court appointed attorney? Sounds like he did. Just cause the trial lasted 4 months,don’t mean every opportunity was given to the defendant under the law. It’s starting to look like these prosecutors don’t give 2 shits about what may or may not have happened to the Jews . They’re just looking for another feather for their war bonnet. From the way the article was written,it sounds like this man was convicted on nothing more than eyewitness testimony. I’ve seen prosecuting attorneys hesitate to take on old cases based on eyewitness accounts. Why? Evidence and people’s memories have been compromised. I’m talking cases that happened 5 or 10 years back. I’m not talking about ongoing cases that are still active that happened years back either. Does the word “coaching”,mean anything to anyone? Prosecuting attorneys are historically famous for doing that shit. Face it. They can take elderly wits (who are easily confused) and put words in their mouths. I’m not saying it happens every time ,there are prosecutors out there ,who are solid . Now. I’ve yet to hear where,any of these cases have ever been appealed. I’m not saying it hasn’t happened,I’ve just never heard it. Courts make mistakes. Do the words “prosecutorial misconduct” mean anything to anyone? That goes back to the prosecutor that wants a feather for his war bonnet. So,this trial took 4 months. Was that nothing but court time or were the defense or the prosecution asking for more time? This whole topic is fueled with nothing but emotion. Who hadn’t heard of the holo? I don’t even think the defendant could get a fair trial on Planet X . I don’t know how this court system operates. If they have a jury,I’m gonna be hard pressed to believe his jury,was fair and impartial. He was tried in Germany . The Jews mark that country,like a dog marks his turf when he pisses. I’ve seen young Germans feeling guilty over what may or may not have happened. They shouldn’t have to feel that way. All humans possess a certain amount of apathy. I don’t see much on this subject. Sympathy runs around like a bunch of unsupervised retards. What’s not love about being the one who prosecutes these cases. It looks to me like it’s an easy payday. I’m sure you’ve got some prosecutors that may want to do the right thing. Fact remains,we’re all humans. Greed will come into play after awhile . The greed for all on the side of the prosecution feeds their ego and overzealous attitude . Once again I’m not taking sides here. It’s just that I’ve been through the criminal justice system and I’ve found out one thing . “Justice for all ” is just a snazzy saying. That’s why I’m starting to pick these cases apart. I’d love to see the court transcripts from the stenographer.
