This bitch was born in 1930, so she would’ve been in her pre-teens or early teens when she got to Stutthof. Funny how the genocidal maniacs that ran these death camps were so incompetent that tens of thousands of kids, toddlers and even babies could somehow survive them for years…
They’re doing it again.
This ritualistic humiliation of some really old people, without literally any accusation other than “you were in the vicinity.”
This is really bad optics…
The prosecution’s closing arguments will be heard on Monday in the trial of a 93-year-old former Nazi concentration camp guard for complicity in the murder of more than 5,000 people during World War II.
In what could be one of the last such cases of surviving Nazi guards, Bruno Dey stands accused of complicity in the murder of 5,230 people when he worked at the Stutthof camp near what was then Danzig, now Gdansk in Poland.
Dey, who has appeared in court in a wheelchair, denies bearing any guilt for what happened at the camp.
His defence has insisted that he did not join the SS voluntarily before serving at the camp from August 1944 to April 1945, ending up assigned there because a heart condition excluded him from frontline service.
But prosecutors argue that his involvement was crucial to the killings, as his time in the SS coincided with the “Final Solution” order to systematically exterminate Jews through gassing, starvation or denial of medical care.
Dey is standing trial at a juvenile court because he was aged between 17 and 18 at the time.
This whole thing sounds a script from an Adam Sandler movie.
Why hasn’t Adam Sandler made a movie about this anyway?
During his testimony in May, Dey told the court that he wanted to forget his time at the camp.
“I don’t want to keep going over the past,” he told the Hamburg tribunal.
Judge Anna Meier-Goering had asked whether Dey had spoken to his children and grandchildren about the time he stood guard at Stutthof.
“I don’t bear any guilt for what happened back then,” Dey said. “I didn’t contribute anything to it, other than standing guard. But I was forced to do it, it was an order.”
Dey acknowledged last year that he had been aware of the camp’s gas chambers and admitted seeing “emaciated figures, people who had suffered”, but insisted he was not guilty.
The Nazis set up the Stutthof camp in 1939, initially using it to detain Polish political prisoners.
But it ended up holding 110,000 detainees, including many Jews. Some 65,000 people perished in the camp.
The vast majority of those people died of typhus, just like most people who died in these camps did for that matter, and that’s what the vast majority of non-Jewish historians said for decades after the war until it became illegal to do so.
But let’s pretend we’re all idiots and don’t know that.
Dey, who now lives in Hamburg, became a baker after the war.
Married with two daughters, he supplemented his income by working as a truck driver, before later taking on a job in building maintenance.
He came into prosecutors’ sights after a landmark 2011 ruling against former Sobibor camp guard John Demjanjuk on the basis that he was part of the Nazi killing machine.
Since then, Germany has been racing to put on trial surviving SS personnel on those grounds rather than for murders or atrocities directly linked to the individual accused.
Ukrainian-American Demjanjuk was convicted of being an accessory to the murder of nearly 30,000 Jews at the Sobibor death camp. He died while his appeal was pending.
The court ruled that as a guard at the camp, he was automatically implicated in killings carried out there at the time.
I’m a very conspiracy-minded person by nature, and when I look at anything even vaguely political, I automatically think there’s something else behind it that I’m not being told about.
In this case, I kinda wonder if the people doing these prosecutions aren’t secretly pro-Nazi and doing it just to garner sympathy for the Nazis, because it’s very hard for me to imagine any Jew being stupid enough to not understand how bad this mockery of justice looks to most people.
Even Breitbart’s mostly cuckservative comments section overwhelmingly thinks this is dumb, albeit for different reasons than why I think it’s dumb.
But then again, maybe the problem Jews have here is more pathological than cognitive…
Hey, I just realized a good reason to vote for Trump!
If you don’t, everybody who was at that Charlottesville thing is gonna be retroactively accused of murder just for being there!
You think that’s a stretch?
If you do, I think you don’t yet understand what it is that is happening here.
