Setting up the mass abduction of people so that they can be shipped to a literal execution house is a lot different from shooting civilians on accident that were stupid enough to waltz into a firefight or stick around while nut jobs with guns took over their neighborhood as a staging ground to do some short sighted attack that will ultimately fail against a war machine like the US. If they want to fight then maybe they should do it away from the people they are pretending to care about and defend.
I don't blame a US Marine one bit if he accidentally kills a civilian while he's shooting his way out of an ambush.
I do blame anybody who takes on the job of hunting down a certain group of humans (regardless of faith of orientation), abducting them from their homes, and then purposely shipping them to a literal slaughter house to be executed in mass. Thats a little different.

He may well have been executed for not following orders, but choosing your own life over 15,000+ others?
Some of those 15,700 may have still been alive today had it not been for him "following his orders".
If guilty, he should be punished, he never gave those 15,700 people a chance, why should society give him a chance just because he is 97?

He wasn't even at Auschwitz so how can he be held accountable for what happened to them? He was a police commander in charge of a Jewish ghetto in Kassa, Hungary his responsibility ended when they were shipped off. The last Nazi they arrested was acquitted so I really don't see this man being successfully charged with anything.
