    Default Last SS Guard ? at Auschwitz Death Camp convicted in German Court

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36560416


    Reinhold Hanning, now 94, was found guilty of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people.

    He was an SS guard at Auschwitz from 1942 to 1944, age approx. 20-22 years old.

    The verdict came after a trial lasting nearly four months in the western German city of Detmold.

    At the trial, about a dozen elderly Auschwitz survivors testified against Hanning, giving harrowing accounts of their experiences.

    Prosecutors said he met Jewish prisoners as they arrived at the camp and may have escorted some to the gas chambers.

    Hanning's lawyers had argued that he had never personally killed or beaten anyone.

    He told the court in April: "I want to say that it disturbs me deeply that I was part of such a criminal organization.

    "I am ashamed that I saw injustice and never did anything about it and I apologize for my actions. I am very, very sorry."

    German prosecutors were required, until recently, to provide evidence that defendants were directly involved in the killings.

    That changed with the 2011 conviction of John Demjanjuk, when a judge concluded that his activities as a camp worker in Nazi-occupied Poland amounted to complicity in mass murder.

    Last year a German court sentenced Oskar Groening, 94, to four years in jail as an accessory to the murder of at least 300,000 people at Auschwitz.

    Known as the SS "book-keeper of Auschwitz", Groening was allegedly responsible for counting banknotes confiscated from prisoners.

    Well, that's what Winston Churchill wanted, instead of any "trials". Churchill just wanted to shoot the lawless criminals, all of the death camp workers, and the leadership over it. He was over-ridden by Russia, who wanted the trials, and the US, who had such a "high moral ground", that felt that trials would be better for western democracies as an example to the world.

    Churchill was one tough SOB. I would send this SS pos to Israel and let him live out the rest of his life seeing what wonder has happened as a result of his Nazi brothers. He can't be to well at 94 so hard labor is not going to cut it. Let the go from place to place apologizing til he croaks.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
