The world should never be allowed to forget the terrible things that humans can do to humans. This person should be deported immediately and put on trial in the appropriate country.

Where is the outrage from society? This man had lived for all these years without prosecution. These atrocities committed by this man should never be forgotten.

Will this guy be treated just like Kathleen Soliah, aka Sara Jane Olson. You know her as the hippie terrorist that hid out here for a couple of decades as an upstanding soccer mom. Will this Nazi get the same out pouring of compassion? Cookbooks published and sold in his name? I hope not. Send him back to stand trail for his crimes against humanity.

Am I the only one who thinks that prosecuting a 94 year old man for crimes he did not individually commit during a time of unbelievable violence and pressure isn't exactly "justice"? I mean, the guy has lived a quiet life here for the last 60+ years. Is the world going to be any safer now that this elderly man is prosecuted?

We all have to answer for our sins. He lied to get into the country and he was a commander of a very brutal and heartless group. He was young and probably did not have a great understanding of what he was doing, but the lives he helped take and the pain he caused others, needs to be addressed, regardless of his age today.
