BERLIN Around 20 former guards at the death camp Majdanek could face charges in Germany, following a widespread probe of the Nazi SS men and women who served there during World War II, war crimes investigators said Tuesday.

War crimes trials were always intended for high level policy makers and officers. Not low level camp guards.
There are no major Nazi war criminals alive today.
I wonder how old these kids were? 16-18 possibly? Ant it happened over 50 years ago??
Bet all the guards are non-Germans.
No matter the age, they were evil in what they participated in.
Were they working for the VA?
Wouldn’t surprise me, but you never know; a lot of young Germans were insanely fanatical at the time.
Wouldn’t surprise me.
I just found it curious that Germany went after Ukrainians, like Demjanjuk, much more than any German/Austrian war criminals.
As if Germany wants to say, “See, it wasn’t only us that participated in the Holocaust.”
It was SEVENTY years ago——why bother?
Many SS and Death Camp Guards joined the French Foreign Legion after the war and most of the ex-SS, ex-Einzengruppen, and ex-Death Camp Guards died at the battle of Dien Bien Phu. Some writers have called it the "last fight of the SS".
You want to see some fun, go to a cop forum and ask them if they would enforce a law that would require them to herd Anne Frank onto a rail car to an internment camp. Around half will say yes, because it’s their job to enforce the law. The rest will be split between “no” or will refuse to answer. So yeah, the willingness to go along with evil isn’t just a German thing.
The most guilty non-repentant Nazi collaborator around today is George Soros.
I wonder if they’ll go after Soros as well.
I’d not want to be judged on the basis of what I did at 18. But then again, I wasn’t a concentration camp guard at that age, either.
It happened over 70 years ago.
70 years or more.
Has something to do with being the member of a gubmint.
Assuming they were Ukrainians, did they “Volunteer” to be guards, or was their only choice that, or a bullet?
Most death camp guards were Ukrainian.
If you should be allowed to get away with murder at age 16 or 18, what age do you have to be for your murders to "count"? 20? 40?
It has been what, 69 years since the war ended?
At a minimum anyone who was involved have to be in their late 80’s, and most likely in their 90’s.
Heck, most who are alive probably are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer by now. Talk a bout a waist of time and energy.
Can we let it go already?
No other war in the history of man kind, has had the losers paying for their beliefs some 60 years after it ended. Not by men anyway.
That, and we still have yet to make the leaders of the Soviet Union pay for their war crimes, before, during, and after WWII.
I also wonder how there could be any high level Nazi’s still alive. Perhaps is they are over 95 years of age. WWII ended in 1945, and anyone who was 18 years old then would now be 87 years of age.
Sixty thousand people were arrested at the doors of abortion clinics, preventing abortions, in the 1980s. Only one or two cops on the entire U.S. quit their jobs rather than assist in the killing of babies. (NO CATHOLIC BISHOP instructed the police that it was a mortal sin to assist in opening up the doors of an abortion clinic.)
American worship their paycheck as their god, just like all people everywhere.
These monsters killed the elderly with no compunction. I frankly think any kind of justice is deserved. This is something that was unprecedented in regards to how clinical the entire butchery was carried out.
What about the Civil War?
What about the Civil War?I have yet to read where in 1930 they were bringing up former Confederate Civil War combatants on charges that would bring a death sentence if convicted.
You mean like the pain and suffering a child goes through during a partial birth abortion that has been practiced in America?
Other than the guy in Philly, please name me the doctors who have been brought up on charges?
By the way, guards were not the ones doing the atrocities. Some may have been involved in shooting and ruffing them up, but they were not the ones doing the thinking.
