I guess I've been paged ... Tough issue. Why did the authorities wait so incredibly long to prosecute this man? Did he ever come forward to confess? Does he clearly remember what he did? Was he a willing participant? Is he a changed man? My general feeling is that there is rightly no statute of limitations on mass murder, but all of these questions could be pertinent.I chain-watched the first season of "The Man in the High Castle" recently. It's very good at showing how most people end up conforming, in their behavior and their thoughts, to whoever has power at the time.
I have some sympathy for people who were caught up in atrocious and frightening circumstances. many had to collaborate or be seen to collaborate with the Nazis just to survive and who can blame them? Of course that doesn't excuse their actions, it just goes some way to explaining their actions.
