What's the point? These stories remind me of the guy who always comes around and reveals private information about himself or his family that he shouldn't really be talking about. The Jews have been evicted from nations throughout Europe over 125 times in the last 2 thousand years.. can anyone tell me what they have learned from those "pograms?" The answer is they have learned nothing, everything is always the host nation's fault and they are always the irrational target of racism.

a person who served at a death camp can be charged with accessory to murder because the camp's sole function was to kill people - - - and shot back then if he refused to serve......heckuva Catch-22. I can see the real need to punish assembly-line murder. However when a soldier is NOT given a choice, where does the legal trap stop????

can anyone tell me what they have learned from those "pograms?" - - - Just what lesson do you think the Jews should have learned??????? I heard one lesson "When a person says he is going to kill you, believe him"

dave, he could have been like others and refused, yes many of them died, but Id rather die standing up for what I believe in than assisting others in murder

Come on, this guy was a *cook*. Yes, the Holocaust was horrible, but doesn't this push the concept of accessory/guilt by association a little too far? On the bright side, if he's #4 on the list of most-wanted Nazis, we should feel some relief that all the important ones are either caught already or dead - I doubt anyone will shed any tears when we run out of them entirely.
