    Why not chase around the Communist murders? Their body count is much higher and went on much longer..

    • Neph

      Because the Soviets didn’t keep record of their murders. Had they, I’m sure there’d be just as much animosity towards them as there is towards Nazis.

      Though, in all honesty it’d still be ridiculous to chase after old men and women who are nearly on their death bed as it is.

      • Johnny

        The Nazi’s didn’t keep records of their murders, just the day-to-day operations of the labor and internment camps.

        It would have been pretty stupid of them to keep records of murders that the official story says they tried to cover up very intensely, to the extent of digging up years old already decomposing bodies just to cremate what was left of them and taking the time to use hammers to pulverize the bone fragments, teeth and other pieces that didn’t burn.

        The funny thing is that if true it was all a pointless effort since none of the mass-graves have been exhumed anyways and thus have never actually been used as evidence.

        There are records from the Nazi’s and the International Red Cross which account for the deaths of approx 800,000 people at all the camps from primarily Typhus and to a lesser extent starvation, but according to the official view those records are all fake.

        I’m not sure what to believe – is there no evidence because the Nazi’s covered it up or is the evidence well documented by the Nazi’s as others claim? [scratch head]

        Oh, and the Soviet murders were well documented during the Cold War when the ‘Commies’ were enemy #1, but the ‘documentation’ generally tended to be more about propaganda than truthful fact telling(500 dead turns into 50,000 and such).

        The Commies have always been portrayed as bloodthirsty beasts, but the Nazi’s and the Holocaust are a political and religious issue for many people these days and naturally get more attention.

        Plus the whole propaganda spin of WWII being ‘the good war’.

    Whenever possible, their crimes should not go unpunished but our government is guilty of allowing Japanese war criminals to skate in exchange for information about their biological and chemical weapons “research” inflicted on Chinese in Manchuria. These citizens pursuing war criminals are doing the jobs their governments should have completed but did not for political reasons.

    Non english subtitles getting in the way of the english subtitles, can’t read what the people are saying.

  • Keeperofthesigns

     As with all wars throughout time, history is written by the victors. It is really hard to say what actually happened during the war without exhuming some of the alleged mass grave sites. With many of the sites of the camps being built over today it is really hard to determine if they where just labor camps like those set up in Canada and US for Japanese immigrants or death camps. 

    There is little doubt that atrocities where actually committed during the war. They happen in all wars it is unavoidable. It is reasonable to say that there where a bunch of psychopaths who did commit mass murders while serving the Third Reich but i find a mass genocide such as the holocaust highly suspect. The average German soldier was no different than an American or British soldier serving their country. To say that the average person serving in a war is a monster because a few of his fellow soldiers where is kind of ridiculous. It can be compared to the abuse many Vietnam vets endured after returning from the war and being labelled baby killers and other horrible things. Sure there where nut jobs in Vietnam that did machine gun down children and women but we don’t make them stand trial for their crimes. Nor do we arrest and put their comrades who may have not been part of the massacres in jail because they where just there and might have known what their superiors where doing. 

    It would be logical to assume that to question a superior officer would lead to a court marshal and prison time in a military prison. The penalty for treason is still death so a deserter or defector could be sentenced to death based on a charge of treason. The Nazis where no different, It was likely fear that kept most people from questioning their orders and most of the atrocities where not committed in public in front of local authorities. 

    I think as time goes by the facts get glossed over by years of propaganda and certain regimes are painted in a villainous light while others are allowed to commit crimes against humanity, justified as necessary tactical procedures in a war on terror. Personally, i think that the holocaust was hyped up to justify the British invasion of Palestine and the forced displacement of millions of Palestinians many of whom lived on their land for generations from their homes and land. This was done not in the interests of the Jewish people but in the interests of Europe’s financial elite. Zionism has nothing to do with a race of people. Many Zionists are not jewish at all, it is a political agenda to control a region of land which symbolically holds the hearts of the world’s three largest religions. You control the beliefs of the people and they will eat out of your hand whatever you choose to feed them.

    Don’t get me wrong i am no proponent of nazi-ideology, there is no question that what the nazi’s did to people they considered undesirable (Jews, homosexuals, gypsies, communists, etc) was wrong. But it is not any more wrong than the treatment of the Palestinian people who are forced to live in walled ghettos and go through 5 checkpoints just to get to a hospital or to go to work. Look at the atrocities being committed by private security firms in Iraq and Afghanistan. Are they any better than the SS? I wouldn’t say they are any better but history has not yet painted them as the monsters they truly are, and with the US and British governments being their primary employers it is highly unlikely they ever will be.

    To me it just does not make sense to put old men in jail for crimes they personally did not commit. Even if they where in the same place as where the crimes where committed how are they responsible for the actions of others. It is like saying a police officer goes nuts and shoots a suspect for looking at him the wrong way. Would his partner be charged with the murder? How was he to know his partner was going to go nuts? Or how was he to know his partner wasnt going to shoot him if he got in the way? Personally, if an armed group of soldiers told me to process people’s paperwork for them because that was my job i would do it. I would rather not get shot for disobeying a psycho with a gun. Just my thoughts on the subject

      Though it was over 2 years ago that you left the comment, I have to reply: damn well said. You are in good company… and it’s a growing contingent of thoughtful people who are not easily fooled or distracted.

    Pathetically timid journalists, scared to ask their interviewees the tough questions.

  • Vance

    I didn’t watch it because some japanese commercial at the beginning was at like 150dB and distorted.  very annoying.

  • Malcolm McLean

    These men have been known for 60 years – where the lived, their new names, their jobs – even in America the soldiers that took part in these crimes are known.

    Why are they being arrested now?

  • Alexandra

    These journalists are RUBBISH. Yes they are frail old men, and at some points i felt sorry for them too, but they didnt feel sorry for all the frail old men they convicted to death or those poor innocent children, mothers, fathers etc. Why aren’t they asking the REAL questions, the TOUGH questions. However guilty they are i do not think they should be brought to trial and convicted, they know what they have done and i’m sure they have been living in guilt for the last 65 years, memories like that do not just fade away. They are all 90+ what the hell will they do with them, stick them in a cell for a few years? It all seems like a lost cause to me
