New criminal charges against former guards at Nazi camps

The following quote is from a recent news article which you can read in full at http://www.readingeagle.com/ap/article/minnesota-holocaust-survivors-help-leads-to-new-criminal-charges-against-nazi-guards

Begin quote from news article:

MINNEAPOLIS—In Judith Meisel’s last image of her mother, Mina, she is standing outside a gas chamber at the Stutthof concentration camp in Poland, awaiting the same fate that befell 65,000 other prisoners [who were gassed to death] there.

Born in 1926, Mosberg was 13 in 1939 when his family was put into the Krakow Ghetto, which was shown in the early scenes of the movie Schindler’s List.

Mosberg told reporters that his “father was soon killed and one by one, his grandparents were taken to the gas chambers.” When the Krakow ghetto was liquidated on March 13, 1943, Mosberg’s remaining family was sent to the Plaszow camp, where Oskar Schindler saved more than 1,000 Jews by putting their names on a list to be sent to his new factory in what is now the Czech Republic. Mosberg and his family were not on the list. They were sent instead to Auschwitz where his mother was killed in the gas chamber. His two sisters were transferred from Auschwitz to the Stutthof camp near Gdansk. The night before the camp was liberated, according to Mosberg, his sisters were among the 7,000 young women who were shot by the Nazis and thrown into the Baltic sea.

Mosberg told reporters that the Nazis had made one last attempt to kill the group of men that he was working with at Mauthausen. According to Mosberg, the Nazis told the men that the Americans were coming and that they wanted to save them from the soldiers, so the Nazi guards rounded up the prisoners and put them into a cave that had been rigged with dynamite. Mosberg said that it was a miracle that the dynamite did not go off, and he was saved by the Americans who liberated Mauthausen on May 5, 1945.

In 2003, I visited the Mauthausen camp and took photos which I put on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Mauthausen/KZMauthausen/index.html

I also visited the nearby town of Mauthausen, which is a very beautiful place. I took photos of the town and put them on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Mauthausen/Town/index.html

  1. If 7000 people were shot and then dumped in the sea where are the remains?
