With each day, more and more Holocaust survivors pass away. So, too, do opportunities to bring those who perpetrated the Holocaust to justice. Such is not the case, reports JNS, of the eight elderly suspects identified by a German Nazi hunter as having been guards at the infamous Stutthoff concentration camp:
The head of Germany's Central Office for the Investigation of Nazi Crimes in Ludwigsburg, Jens Rommel, told German news agency DPA that information about the eight elderly suspects, four men and four women, has been submitted to prosecutors across Germany, who are currently investigating the suspects for working at the Stutthoff concentration camp near the Baltic coast in Poland...
"Germany's commitment to identifying more former Nazi camp guards is encouraging," Ronald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, said in a statement.
"Given the vast system of concentration and extermination camps put in place by the Nazis, and the amount of personnel required to run and guard these sites, it comes as no surprise that some of these perpetrators are still alive, even today," he said, Reuters reported.
