Germany Tracks Down 50 Suspected Auschwitz Guards


auschwitzGermany plans to open investigations into 50 guards from the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, on suspicion of being accessories to murder.

Kurt Schrimm, head of the Central Office of the State Justice Administration for the Investigation of National Socialist Crimes, said investigators already have the names and addresses of suspects. They live in Germany and their average age is 90.

The investigation was made possible as a result of the recent legal precedent set by the trial of camp guard John Demjanjuk, who was convicted in 2011 in Germany of being an accessory to the murders of 28,000 Jews in the Sobibor extermination camp.

  1. Let’s not be too harsh on these geezers. All we need to do is to look at how they treated other nonagenarians in the past and apply midda-c’negged-midda type justice. Anything beyond that would just be unfair.
