Would you include German citizens in that justification? German citizens who were not targeted by the Nazis?
I was mainly thinking of American laws that give a homeowner right to shoot if his/her person is in danger or they are in their house and theatened by an intruder
Were there *any* German citizens whose lives were not forfeit at the whim of the SS? Weren’t their lives cheapened by the euthanasia, the polgroms and the camps?
Which of them could say that they enjoyed liberty and the right not to be killed from 1933 until 1945, if they hid Jews or, as Bonhoeffer did, plotted to overthrow or kill Hitler?
