The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

BERLIN (AP) — A German court has removed three judges found to be biased in the often-delayed trial of a former SS medic who served at the Auschwitz death camp.

The German news agency dpa reported Saturday that the Neubrandenburg state court appointed three new judges on Friday. Prosecutors filed complaints after the original judges ruled 96-year-old Hubert Zafke unfit and repeatedly postponed the trial.

Zafke is charged with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly helping the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland function, but his attorney says he did nothing criminal.

The charges stem from a one-month period in 1944 and involve the deaths of Jews who arrived in 14 train transports.

Prosecutors allege that Zafke’s unit was involved in putting gas into gas chambers to kill Jews and others.

My photo of the holes on the roof of the Krema I gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp.

Say what? It took a whole unit of German soldiers to put the gas into the gas chambers at Auschwitz? As my photo above shows, it was a simple task to lift up the lids on the holes in the gas chamber, and pour in the Zyklon-B gas pellets. It would have taken only 3 men, each working an 8 hour shift, to man the gas chamber, pouring the Zyklon-B pellets through the holes on the roof.

  1. I think maybe the photo you show of the roof is actually at auschwitz not Dachau.

  2. “Bows his head in court”. Are they sure that’s what he was doing. I mean it can’t be because he’s older than dirt and he’s doing good just to be able to sit through the BS kangaroo court. How much longer till these shit bags try to put the family members of these people on trial? Hey,it wouldn’t surprise me. Proverbial,”guilt by association “. The doucebag Jews will stoop to any level.

  3. Have Reinhold Hanning and Oskar Groening spent a single day in a prison cell? No? Thus this is just another judicial farce with acquiescent “actors” who risk nothing as long as they cooperate. The show must go on. There’s no business like shoah business…

  4. I am commenting on my own blog post because I am about to bust a gut – literally – from laughing. This poor old guy is 96 years old, and still the Jews have to torture him. Why not let him live out his last years? The Jews have to have their revenge, no matter what.

      Not a matter of revenge. Only a matter of media circus and politics.

    • “The Jews have to have their revenge, no matter what.”
      In other words, “Never forgive, never forget.” But also, never self-reflect.

      In the entrance hall of one of the brick huts inside the Auschwitz I camp, the outstanding quote of George Santayana can be found painted on the wall (as of 2015) as one enters the building, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The Auschwitz version was, as I recall, slightly differently worded than the quote I believe to be attributed to Santayana, but still, it struck me then and continues to do so – the Jews are condemned to repeat their past because they repeatedly fail to reflect on what led their people to the precipice, time and again. Or, thereafter, fail to do anything about it.
