Germany will let a 92 year old Holocaust criminal slide

The photo below is at the top of a recent news story about a Holocaust criminal.

The following quote is from a news story that you can read in full here: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/german-court-rules-92-year-old-auschwitz-radio-operator-unfit-fo/3115168.html

Begin quote

A German court has said it will shelve a case against a 92-year-old woman on accessory to murder charges. The woman, who served as radio operator at Auschwitz, would have been among the last to be tried for Nazi crimes.

End quote

Oh no! What is the world coming to? This woman is a danger to the over one million Jews who are back in Germany now.  She should be sentenced to at least 5 years in prison because she committed the crime of working as a radio operator during World War II. I am sure that she was warned that she was committing a crime, but she continued with her criminal behavior.

It is hard to get a good photo of the Arbeit gate because there is a steady stream of tourists walking through this gate, from the moment that the memorial site opens. I got up at the crack of dawn and sneaked in. I got this photo before the other tourists arrived.

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

The state court in the northern German city of Kiel said in a statement on Friday that Helma M. was almost fully blind and deaf and had also been weakened by a “severe internal illness” earlier this year, rendering her unfit to stand trial.

End quote

Just because this woman is blind and deaf and has been weakened by a severe illness does not excuse her from being put on trial.

REVENGE, REVENGE, REVENGE — that is the law of the Jews. She was a radio operator in a camp for Jews. That makes her a criminal.

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

The 92-year-old’s last name was not released, in accordance with German privacy law.

Helma M. had been charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder associated with her activities as the radio operator of the commandant at the Auschwitz Nazi death camp.

Last Nazi trials

Germany is holding what are likely to be its last trials linked to Nazi-era crimes, with the alleged perpetrators now either deceased or extremely aged.  [link to another trial]

End quote

I think that the trials of the German people should continue even after they are dead. After all, this woman was a RADIO OPERATOR.  You can’t get any worse than that.

If you don’t know the difference between Rudolph Hess and Rudolf Hoess, don’t be writing news articles

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 7:58 pm

In a recent news article, which you can read in full here, Rudolf Hess is mistakenly named as the Commandant of the Auschwitz camp.

The name of the Commandant was Rudolf Hoess. Rudolf Hess was Hitler’s deputy and and his close friend.

The following quote is from the news article:

German prosecutors have alleged that Helma M., who served as a radio operator for camp commander Rudolph Hess in 1944, received details of incoming shipments of Jews to be murdered at the Nazi camp.

This is not the railway track LEADING TO THE INFAMOUS GATE OF DEATH.  This photo actually shows the tracks inside the camp, not the tracks leading to the camp.

My photo below shows the track LEADING INTO the camp.

With regard to Rudolf Hess, here is the background on him, from my scrapbookpages.com website:

It was in the Max Josef room of the Hörhammer Inn that a group of Dachau residents met in November 1922 to form the Bund Oberland which became the Dachau Nazi party in 1929. The Nazi party held regular meetings at the Inn.

The KPD, as the Communist party was called, also held meetings here and the two parties had frequent clashes. The Communists would attempt to break up meetings by the Nazis and prevent them from speaking.

One of the Nazis who was preventing from speaking at a meeting at the Hörhammerbräu was Rudolf Hess, a resident of the nearby town of Augsburg.

Hess became famous during World War II when he took off in his own plane from an airfield in Augsburg and flew to Scotland with the intention of negotiating with the British to end the war in 1940. His peace attempt failed and he spent the rest of the war in prison in England, then the rest of his life in Spandau prison in Berlin after being convicted as a war criminal at Nuremberg.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Despite camp duty rosters that reportedly confirm she was in Hess’s service from April to July 1944, Helma M. escaped prosecution at the end of the war because no evidence that she personally harmed any Auschwitz inmates during her time at the camp was ever presented to German courts.

In recent years however, Germany’s laws regarding the prosecution of former Nazis has shifted, and now defines suspects’ involvement in death camps as sufficient grounds for culpability in Nazi war crimes, even without proof of committing a specific crime.

As a result, a wave of new investigations into former Nazi guards, medics and other camp workers has led to a handful of trials against a dwindling number of aging suspects.

In 2015, Jens Rommel, Germany’s top Nazi hunter, charged Helma M. with complicity in the murders of 260,000 people in the Auschwitz death camp.

92-year-old frail and deaf woman might be put on trial for her role in killing Jews in the Holocaust

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:17 am

I know what you are thinking, dear reader. You are wondering what heinous crime this woman committed during the time that the Hungarian Jews were being transported to Auschwitz in 1944.

[I thought that the Hungarian Jews were transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau, but what do I know?]

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3636247/Former-SS-radio-operator-92-received-details-train-loads-Jews-murdered-Auschwitz-faces-genocide-trial.html

According to the recent news article, cited above, this woman [Helma M.] “received the details of incoming shipments of Jews to be murdered at the Auschwitz extermination camp,” and she “will stand trial for her involvement in genocide.”

Did Helma M. know, at the time when she “received details of incoming shipments of Jews” that these Jews were being sent to Auschwitz to be killed?

Did Helma M. know the meaning of the word genocide? Did she know that some day, there would be a law against being involved in genocide?

I took a photo very similar to the photo above on one of my 3 visits to the Auschwitz main camp. My photo was taken a little bit earlier in the morning.

My photo of the Arbeit Macht Frei gate

My early morning photo of the Arbeit Macht Frei gate

The German words on the gate literally mean “work brings freedom” but the Jews have now taken possession of these words and they claim that this slogan was used to taunt the Jews, who would never be given their freedom, but instead would go “up the chimney” as they were cremated after being gassed to death.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Helma M., who lives in an OAP home near Neumünster in Germany, escaped justicde [justice] at war’s end because no-one could prove she had personally harmed anyone within the camp near the city of Krakow.

End quote

The rules have changed since “war’s end.” No proof is now required. Helma M. is German and all Germans are guilty and can never be forgiven.

I predict that, after the last German is dead and gone, there will still be trials conducted because the Jews can never get enough revenge.

The news article ends with the following quote:

Begin quote

Now it is enough to bring prosecutions against former camp guards merely for serving as part of the Nazo ‘murder machine.’

Consequently Jens Rommel, head of the central authority in Germany charged with prosecuting Nazi war crimes, has charged her with complicity in the murders of 260,000 people in the camp.

In her role as a radio operator of the S.S., Mr Rommel said she received and transmitted details of the liquidation of that number of people – most of them Hungarian Jews – between April and July 1944.

Mr Rommel said: ‘Helma M. was involved in the so-called ‘Hungarian Action’ which saw the destruction of at least half the Jewish population of Hungary.

‘Three to four trains arrived daily. Of 360,000 people, at least a quarter of a million of them were murdered immediately, most of them women and children unfit for work.’

He said the killings were organised in the command area where Helma M. worked. He said she knew when the trains arrived and when they left Hungary.
Helma M., who lives in an OAP home near Neumünster in Germany, escaped justicde [justice] at war’s end because no-one could prove she had personally harmed anyone within the camp near the city of Krakow.

When she received news that a train was on its way, S.S. personnel were scrambled to meet it to select those who would live and those who would die instantly.

Helma M. came from Mrągowo, formerly in East Prussia, now part of Poland and knew no other life than that under the Nazi regime.

‘Helma M., would have known what was happening in Auschwitz, would have heard the sound of the shootings and the smell of burning bodies,’ added Mr Rommel.

‘We have learned from other interrogations that people in the command centre talked of the daily events, and as such we say she was a part of the murder machine which made Auschwitz function.’

Prosecutors want her to answer for her crimes before the Juvenile Court of Kiel because she would have been considered a youth at the time of her service in Auschwitz.

Earlier this year experts said she was not fit to stand trial. But she has been ordered to undergo a new examination next month.
