And I was putting Taliban and Nazis on the same side there. (Since you like to kill them it's probably ok)
Yeah guys I know lets equate the Holocaust with any modern war because you know, the similarities are just ENDLESS!
By the way, another flaw in the "he was just following orders" theory (IF he actually served at the camp, not saying he definitely did), is the fact that the majority of Ukranians (not Germans, Ukranians) who worked in camps were volunteers.
God I don't understand why people want to put him on trial now that he's 89 years old.
Good god putting an 89 man in jail will do nothing to avenge the hollocaust. You are creating more suffering because of many sufferings.
And they don't view the story on his point of view. At the time he probably didn't know it would end like this or any better. He was following orders. If you didn't follow orders you'd most likely get shot and imprisoned. Its not like he asked to be an accessory to murder 27,000. Holy shit people.
Someone needs to smack these bitches, hard.
The Communism in Russia never actually reached Communism. It was its own clusterfuck of a governmental system.
I think this is stupid. He probably didn't even kill anyone himself, he was a FUCKING GUARD, doing his damn job.
Also, yet again, if he was a guard there, he wouldn't have been ORDERED on penalty of death. He would have been a volunteer, as all Ukrainians who worked in Extermination camps were.
I would hope so, but maybe I should actually read up on it more before I go off on a rant about it.
Yeah, but in this article and some others I've seen no mention that they're trying to determine what he actually did, just whether he was a guard there or not.
What are they going to do? The man is 89 and has a form of leukemia. Throwing him in prison would be a waste.
