History that keeps resurfacing

Just saw this article in the New York Times: Without being able to prove guilt for individual crimes, they are now able to persecute guards at death camps for being an accessory to murder. These men are in their 80s-90s today. Interesting legally.

“The Demjanjuk conviction has created the possibility to prosecute perhaps as many as several dozen Holocaust perpetrators who served in the most lethal Nazi installations and units, and basically spent as much as two years carrying out mass murder on practically a daily basis,” Mr. Zuroff said.

  1. Oh...I just don't know how I feel about this...SOOO much later. Kind of feel like that was their job...they had to do what they were told? Don't you think they have probably lived their lives feeling so badly about this?
