German prosecutors are running out of war criminals to be put on trial

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:37 am

For years, Germany has been trying to make amends for killing 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, but to no avail.  The Jews have been receiving reparations from the German people for over 70 years, but it is never enough.

The motto of the Jews is “Never forgive, never forget.”

The following quote is from a recent news article :

Begin quote

German prosecutors have also recently charged two other Auschwitz death camp employees, a medic and a radio operator. But the suspects’ high age and frail health, more than 70 years after the end of World War Two, prevented the cases from going forward.

[Jens] Rommel said that more than 95 percent of a potential pool of suspects were either dead or too frail to be put on trial.

“It’s frustrating sometimes to see a suspect die just a few days before the start of a trial after much work has been invested into the case,” said Rommel.

Rommel said he is also concerned that a pending verdict by Germany’s Federal Court of Justice might stop Nazi crime investigations altogether. The court is expected to rule on the appeal of [Oscar] Groening, who has rejected the broader definition.

“If the [federal] court reverses the verdict and decides that the proof is not sufficient it would become extremely difficult to go forward with any other cases,” Rommel said.

End quote

My suggestion is that the wives of the dead German war criminals could be put on trial. Women usually live longer than men, so there should be plenty of widows to put on trial. In any case, the show must go on. “Never forgive, never forget” — that is the motto of the Jews.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A 94-year-old former Auschwitz guard has been convicted of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people, at the end of what is likely to be one of Germany’s last Holocaust trials.

Reinhold Hanning was sentenced to five years’ jail for facilitating the slaughter at the death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, having served at Auschwitz during the Second World War between January 1942 and June 1944. He had faced a maximum sentence of 15 years.

During his four-month trial, Hanning admitted serving as an Auschwitz guard. He said he was ashamed that he was aware Jews were being killed but did nothing to try to stop it.

End quote

Herr Hanning appears to be in excellant health. I believe that Hanning will be able to serve his time in prison. All of the many Holocaust survivors, who are still alive, will be very happy with this verdict. REVENGE, REVENGE, REVANGE — the motto of the Jews.

former Auschwitz guard sentenced to 5 years in prison

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A German court on Friday convicted a former SS guard for complicity in the mass murders at the Nazi-run Auschwitz death camp, capping what is expected to be one of the last Holocaust trials.

More than 70 years after the Second World War, Reinhold Hanning, 94, was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment over his role at the Nazi-run camp in occupied Poland.

“The accused is sentenced to five years’ jail for accessory to murder in 170,000 cases,” ruled the court in the western German city of Detmold.

“He was aware that in Auschwitz, innocent people were murdered everyday in gas chambers.”

During the four-month trial, which involved witnesses giving harrowing accounts of the living hell they faced, prosecutors outlined how Hanning had watched over the selection of prisoners deemed fit for slave labour, and those sent to the gas chambers.

They also accused him of knowing about the regular mass shootings and the systematic starvation of prisoners.

End quote

This is why the Jews have been hated since the beginning of time, and why they will continue to be hated until the end of time. Reinhold Hanning had nothing to do with the alleged gassing of the Jews, and he would not have able to stop the alleged gassing of the Jews. He was a lowly guard at Auschwitz-Birkenau, who had no power to kill anyone.

“one of the guards’ duties at Auschwitz was to ensure prisoners did not leave the camp alive”

The title of my blog post comes from a line in a news article, which you can read in full at http://www.dw.com/en/prosecutors-demand-six-years-for-former-auschwitz-guard/a-19273851

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

The court heard how [German] guards were aware of the exterminations taking place at Auschwitz, and how one of the guards’ duties was to ensure prisoners did not leave the camp alive.

[…]

German state prosecutors have asked judges to sentence a former Nazi guard to six years in prison. Reinhold Hanning, now 94, is accused of complicity in the murder of at least 100,000 prisoners in the concentration camp.

End quote

Obviously, Reinold Hanning failed in his duties at Auschwitz. His duty was to insure that no one left the Auschwitz camp alive. There are thousands of Holocaust survivors still alive today, so Hanning did not do his job properly.

The problem is that Reinhold Hanning is a nice old man, who is trying his best to placate the Jews, but his best isn’t good enough.

If Hanning goes to prison for six years, he will never see the light of day again. He’s 94 now and will be 100 when he gets out.  However, I believe that he will serve out his time in a nursing home. There will be other German criminals in the nursing home with him and they can talk about the Jews that they sent to the gas chamber, and the ones who got away and are now sending old men to prison.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

The case is based on complaints from 40 plaintiffs from Hungary, Israel, Canada, Britain, the US and Germany. Hanning is accused of facilitating the deaths of at least 100,000 people during his time as a guard at the camp.

Roughly 1 million people, most of them Jews, are believed to have died at the Auschwitz camp, set up in German-occupied Poland by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime. The victims typically died either of starvation or in gas chambers.

Hanning told judges that his stepmother had urged him to join the SS.

Where was his real mother? No one could steer Hanning right, but Mama tried, Mama tried. [lyrics of an old song]

The quote from the news article continues with this:

Begin quote

During the hearing, which began in February last year, the 94-year-old admitted that he was an SS guard at Auschwitz and knew about the mass murders which were taking place there. During this admission, Hanning also expressed shame and asked for forgiveness.

End quote

Good luck with getting forgiveness from the Jews!  The motto of the Jews is “Never forgive, never forget.”

Were there really homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz? Yes, you had better believe it if you don’t want to go to prison for the crime of Holocaust denial.

Auschwitz survivors speak at trial of Reinhold Hanning

Please, please, please — stop using photos like the one above to illustrate the horror of Auschwitz.  One prisoner in the photo is having trouble walking out of the camp, after it was liberated, but the other men in the photo look like they are in excellent condition.

The photo above was used in a news story about how Auschwitz survivors confronted Reinhold Hanning, a former SS man who worked at the Auswchwitz 1 camp.  Hanning allegedly mistreated the prisoners at Auschwitz, so let’s see some photos of the prisoners who were mistreated.

Notice the man on the far right, who has a double chin. None of the survivors of the Auschwitz main camp look like they were starving.

The photo above would be more suitable for showing the prisoners after they had been liberated from the main Auschwitz camp.

The photo above would be suitable to illustrate the horror of the Auschwitz camp, but why was this boy allowed to live?  He was under the age of 15, and he was not in good health, so why wasn’t he gassed?

The photo above is also used in the news article, but again, this shows that the survivors of Auschwitz were in good health.  The man in the center of the photo is leaning on a crutch, but maybe he had just sprained his ankle.  At least, the Nazis provided him with a crutch, instead of forcing him to crawl around.

The photo below is my favorite Auschwitz survivor photo.

Trial of former SS man Reinhold Hanning will proceed according to precedent

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:08 am

One of my German American relatives was named Reinhold, the same name as the notorious war criminal Reinhold Hanning.

My relative, Reinhold, was fond of joking and kidding around — so I can relate.  If my German ancestors had not come to America around 1850, one of my relatives could have been a war criminal.

The current rule is that, if you were anywhere near the place where a Jew died of any cause, during World War II, you are a war criminal, and no one will have pity on you just because you are 94 years old.

The following quote is from a recent news article:

BERLIN (AP) — A 94-year-old former SS guard [Reinhold Hanning] at the Auschwitz [Birkenau] death camp is going on trial this week on 170,000 counts of accessory to murder, the first of up to four cases being brought to court this year in an 11th-hour push by German prosecutors to punish Nazi war crimes.

Reinhold Hanning is accused of serving as an SS Unterscharfuehrer — similar to a sergeant — in Auschwitz [Birkenau] from January 1943 to June 1944, a time when hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were brought to the camp in cattle cars and were gassed to death.

End quote

The photo below was used to illustrate the gassing of the Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau.  Children under the age of 15 were immediately gassed, except for these few who were saved for a photo opportunity after the camp was liberated by Soviet soldiers on Jan. 27, 1945. The photo is  still shot from a movie shot by the Soviet liberators.

I have begged and pleaded with Holocaust True Believers not to use photos like the one above, which disproves the Holocaust.  Children under the age of 15 were automatically gassed, according to the Holocaust story — except for these children who were not gassed, for some unknown reason.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Hanning’s attorney, Johannes Salmen, says that his client acknowledges serving at the Auschwitz I part of the camp complex in Nazi-occupied Poland, but denies serving at the Auschwitz II-Birkenau section, where most of the 1.1 million victims were killed. [Auschwitz I was not a death camp]

Prosecutor Andreas Brendel told The Associated Press, however, that guards in the main camp were also used as on-call guards to augment those in Birkenau when trainloads of Jews were brought in.

“We believe that these auxiliaries were used in particular during the so-called Hungarian action in support of Birkenau,” he said.

End quote

So the prosecutor “believes” that Reinhold might have been used as an auxiliary during the Hungarian action.  Could that be Reinhold on the right in the photo below?

You can read about the Hungarian Jews on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/HungarianJews.html

Most of the survivors, who are still alive today, are Hungarian Jews who were not gassed upon arrival. They were allowed to live so that they could testify against a 94 year old man who might have been standing beside the train when they arrived.  This is why the Jews have been hated since the beginning of time and why they will continue to be hated until the end of time.

Holocaust survivor who was born in Auschwitz will testify in trial of former camp guards

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 6:56 am
The main Auschwitz camp

The Auschwitz 1 camp was not a death camp

The following quote is from a news article about former Auschwitz guards who will soon go on trial, charged with committing war crimes, due to their former work in Auschwitz, a so-called Nazi death camp.

Begin quote

Two former SS men will go on trial this month for their alleged complicity in the murder of thousands of people at Auschwitz, as Germany accelerates its bid to prosecute ageing Third Reich criminals.

Reinhold Hanning, 93, faces court in the western town of Detmold from Thursday, charged with at least 170,000 counts of accessory to murder in his role as a former guard at the camp in occupied Poland.

Hubert Zafke, 95, will have to answer at least 3,681 counts of complicity in killings in separate proceedings in the eastern town of Neubrandenburg from Feb. 29.

Zafke was a medical orderly at the camp in a period when 14 trains carrying prisoners — including the teenage diarist Anne Frank — arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau where many would eventually be killed in the gas chambers.

Holocaust survivor Angela Orosz, who will take the witness stand in the Hanning trial, told AFP that all Auschwitz staff “were part of this killing machine.”

“Without these people and their active support for the Holocaust, what happened in Auschwitz, the murder of 1.1 million people in just a few years, would not have been possible, and perhaps many of my family members would still be alive,” said Orosz, who was born in Auschwitz just over a month before it was liberated on January 27, 1945.

End quote

Did you catch that, dear readers? Angela Orosz was born in Auschwitz and allowed to live so that she could testify against former Auschwitz guards 71 years later. Why oh why were the Nazis so stupid?  Didn’t they know that the babies that were born in Auschwitz might live for 70 years and eventually testify about the Nazi war crimes that were not yet crimes, until ex-post-facto laws were passed after the war?

The newspaper article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

The defendants face between three and 15 years in jail, but in view of their advanced age and the period required for any appeals, they are unlikely to serve time.

Nevertheless, Andreas Brendel, who leads the prosecuting team against Hanning, said Germany “owes it to victims and their relatives” to pursue Third Reich criminals.

“Age has no bearing for me,” he said.

Ronald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, agreed.

“If anyone deemed responsible for any aspect of the Holocaust is still able to stand trial, he or she should be prosecuted,” he told AFP.

“As long as it’s possible to bring any of them to justice, it must be done. There is no statute of limitation for mass murder, and there shouldn’t be.”

The two trials come on the heels of last year’s high-profile case against Oskar Groening, dubbed the “Bookkeeper of Auschwitz”.

Groening was sentenced last July to four years in prison, even though he had previously been cleared by German authorities after lengthy criminal probes dating back to the 1970s.

But the legal foundation for prosecuting ex-Nazis changed in 2011 with the German conviction of former death camp guard John Demjanjuk, solely on the basis of his having worked at the Sobibor camp in occupied Poland.

Separately, a German court announced Friday that another former guard at Auschwitz, 93-year-old Ernst Remmel, would have to stand trial in April.

Hanning, like Demjanjuk, was a camp guard, and stands accused of having watched over the selection of which prisoners were fit for labour, and which should be sent to gas chambers.

He is also deemed to have been aware of the regular mass shooting of inmates at the camp, as well as the systematic starvation of prisoners.

“Through his capacity as a guard, he facilitated… the several thousand killings of inmates by the main perpetrator,” prosecutors said.

Hanning has admitted to working in Auschwitz but denies a role in the killings.

Zafke likewise claimed he knew nothing of the mass murder.

Ahead of proceedings, prosecutors said the former medic was “aware of the purpose of the Birkenau camp as an extermination camp” as well as of its structure.
