I have just learned about a former concentration camp guard who was featured in a news article.!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_1200/nazi4e-2-web.jpg

Jakiw Palij — former concentration camp guard

Begin quote from news article:

When President Trump meets with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Thursday in Hamburg ahead of the G20 summit, he should tell her that Germany, in accepting responsibility for the Holocaust, must also accept Jakiw Palij, the last known Nazi war criminal still living in the United States.

Trump can make a stand for justice that his predecessors George W. Bush and Barack Obama never did and right an historical wrong.


Palij, an old man born in 1923, is still living in Jackson Heights — in Trump’s native Queens — despite the Justice Department and federal courts having stripped him of his ill-gotten U.S. citizenship and ordered him deported 13 years ago.

Palij arrived here in 1949 and obtained U.S. citizenship in 1957, lying about his loyal service to the German Reich as a death camp guard in Nazi-occupied Poland. He had volunteered for the SS and was a guard at Trawniki, which the Germans and their Ukrainian collaborators like Palij used as a training camp for death camp guards. Thousands of Jews were murdered at Trawniki.

End quote

I think that it would be wrong to throw this US citizen out just because he worked as a guard at a German concentration camp years ago.




  1. The new Demjanjuk !! Will they be able to concoct a nick name even better than “Ivan the Terrible” for him?

    For info, it finally turned out that Demjanjuk was not Ivan the Terrible of Treblinka – but rather Ivan the Terrible of Sobibor (a German puppet kangaroo court later ruled) – and that the cumulative testimonial ‘evidence’ against him in the 1980s was total BS.

  2. No. It would be wrong to toss his ass,because I don’t see where he’s broken any laws here. Far as I’m concerned,what he may or may not have done then,is hearsay. So. He went to a training facility,where they trained prison guards. If your gonna be a prison guard,you’re gonna need training. Does anyone have material,that the guard students used to study from? Probably not

  3. The Jews aren’t happy until they find every person who was alive that had something to do with the camps.
    I’m sure they are mad because the dogs in the camp have all since died many years ago.

    Isn’t it interesting that NONE of the so called Kapos and Sonderkamandos are brought to trial for the evils they perpetrated against the prisoners in the camps. In fact they say the Kapos were the most brutal of camp overseers, responsible for many deaths by their harsh beatings etc….and of course the Communist get a stay from trial also because they ran some of the trials themselves and they wouldn’t want to implicate themselves for their part of the killings they were involved in not to mention the Allies who murdered thousands of innocent Germans with their air raid bombings on civilian populations.
    Yup it’s all about the Germans being the bad guys and everyone else walking away unscathed. This is what happens when the victors write the history.

  4. The article says last known Nazi ” war criminal” in the US. Has he already been tried and found guilty ?? Surely he could sue for libel ?

  5. I think that it would be wrong to throw this US citizen out just because he worked as a guard at a German concentration camp years ago.

    I don’t think he is a US citizen — not anymore, anyway:


    Christopher A. Wray, Acting Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, announced that a federal judge in Brooklyn, N.Y., today revoked the citizenship of a Queens resident on the basis of his service as an armed guard at an SS slave-labor camp in Nazi-occupied Poland and his concealment of that service when he immigrated to the United States. The denaturalization decision issued today by U.S. District Judge Allyne Ross cited admissions and other evidence proving that Jakiw Palij, 79, served during 1943 as an armed guard at the notorious Trawniki Labor Camp,…

    I especially liked this part:

    The court’s decision quoted historical scholarship…

    Never any proper adversarial court proceeding — just “historical scholarship” and constant pressure from Jews no doubt — also noted: “The ruling today affirms that no individual who assisted in the perpetration of Nazi genocide deserves the precious mantle of United States citizenship,” said Eli M. Rosenbaum, director of the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI), which investigated Palij… — uh-huh, Rosenbaum.

    How much ‘investigating’ was actually done? — the same kind that resulted in Demanjuk’s extradition to Israel, where he was convicted by the testimony of a bunch of Jewish liars?

    • It’s interesting that so long after his citizenship was revoked (14 years ago) — presumably for not telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth on his application — he is still living in the US — did they give him a green card when they took away his citizenship? — did they try to deport him? — did his country of origin refuse to take him back?

      • There are millions of illegal immigrants that come in this country and lie have false documents you name it nothing happens to them if they get deported they just come back.
        I find it interesting that they always make a big deal with these people that they can pin some Holohoax blame on. When people tell me that the the Holohoax is irrelevant today I say I don’t think so because they sure seem to make a big deal about it every turn they can.

        • Right on ! Nothing ever happens to the Wets. They continue to thrive,at the taxpayers expense. They wanna cry about this man fibbing on his application? Take a look at the Wets. A question asked when they fill out paperwork to gain citizenship. “Have you broken any laws?” They came into this illegally. They broke a law there. However this man who lived as a law abiding citizen,is gonna get f–ked. How many laws did the wetbacks break back in Merry ol Mexico? Yet they still want to make this guy out to be Lucifer.
