German prosecutors have charged a 93-year-old man with 300,000 counts of accessory to murder for his service as a Nazi SS guard at Auschwitz during World War II.

Oskar Groening of Hannover, Germany, has acknowledged that he was a guard at Auschwitz but said he did not personally commit any of the atrocities, The Associated Press reported Monday. He was a guard at the concentration camp from May to June 1944. Some 425,000 Hungarian Jews came to Auschwitz during that time; about 300,000 were murdered in its gas chambers.


Took them long enough? I guess he's off to prison.


Groening, who is reportedly in good health, is one of about 30 former Auschwitz guards who were recommended by German federal investigators to be charged by state prosecutors following the conviction of John Demjanjuk, who died while his case was under appeal.

Some 20 Auschwitz victims and their families are co-plaintiffs in the case against Groening, according to AP.


For all those who deny the holocaust happened, what say you to this?

In another article I read about him his job was to go through the clothes of the prisoners to look for money .
93-year-old former Auschwitz guard charged
It's strange that they are willing to go after this guy but do nothing to the people that backed Hitler and sold him the chemicals that were used to kill the Jews. If this guy were rich he wouldn't even be on trial.

I think they got around to that awhile back...


After World War II ended in 1945, the two directors of the Testa company, Bruno Tesch and Karl Weinbacher, were tried in a British military court, convicted of mass murder, and executed for their part in producing and distributing Zyklon B. source

In his book 'Behold a Pale Horse,' former US Naval Intelligence Officer William Cooper relates a story associated with the IG Farben Chemical Company.

In the early 1940s, that company employed a Polish chemist and salesman who sold cyanide gas, Zyklon B and Malathion to the Nazis for extermination of groups of people in Auschwitz.

After the war the salesman joined the Catholic church and was ordained a priest.

In 1958 he became Poland's youngest bishop and after Pope John Paul I's mysterious death, the ex-cyanide gas salesman Karol Wojtyla was elected to the papacy as Pope John Paul II in October 1978.

In March 2000, he publicly apologized not for his war effort, but for the wickedness of the Christian religion. The plea for forgiveness also sought to pardon the use of 'violence in the service of truth' an often used fragile and treoubling referenece to the Inquisition.

The apology read by the Pope was the result of four years of work by a panel of 28 theologians and scholars and was by far the most sweeping act by a leader of a major religion.

At this point I tend to think the same too. It really serves no purpose, especially putting someone on trial who wasn't one of the higher ups/masterminds. German citizens that fought the war were not necessarily evil people, many were just caught up in evil times, doing whatever they had to do to survive themselves.

300,000 or 6,000,000?

Indirect accidental admission? Plenty YouTube videos now examining the empirical evidence... Or lack of it.

What a farse.

I'm sure they're only charging him for those at his camp. According to the article they tried to convict many times in the past but always lacked evidence. He's confessed and now charged.

I have read some revisionist history which calls into question the logistics of gassing and cremating hundreds of thousands of people in these modestly-sized camps in a relatively short period of time. That's one aspect of the story I'd like to see clarified.

ATS does not allow discussion of holocaust denial so I guess you'll never know what we think about this.

I think it would be safe to say, we're going to disagree. I want empirical chain of evidence. Not hearsay.

93? Maybe mental issues? No evidence. Lol.

Besides, take a good long look at Palestine. If that happened as told, they should be the champions of anti genocide in the entire world. Are they?

Actions speak louder than words.

Your own link says he confessed to being a guard only and not to any murders.
