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.

My photo of the gate into Auschwitz main camp

My 2005 photo of the Auschwitz main camp

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.
