These Nazi bastards have lived comfortable lives on substantial German military pensions for over 60 years. The prosecutors finally have a desire to show the world they are serious and make public the horrible deeds of these bastards.

Ugh. Gimme a break. A little late. You know, often I think that outlawing Nazism and expressions of Nazism in Germany is less about "dealing with the past" than sweeping it under the carpet. Sweeping it under the carpet is too often what has happened in Germany. Not as bad as other countries, of course (France, eg).... If any of these dirtbags is actually charged and convicted, will they go to jail or will the court say that they are too old and infirm to be in jail? Justice delayed is justice denied.

Too true.

Those found guilty at the Nuremberg trials were released within five years. Can humans administer proper justice for these crimes? In other words, has the darkened crevices of the human heart devised crimes so horrible that no civilized justice system can address them?

Perhaps simply knowing their names, and never forgetting their names would be sufficient. Our culture almost deifies those who can remembers stacks of trivia. Why don't we know the names of these people like we know the names of athletes?

The same could easily be said regarding slavery. I want to know the names of the slave owners, the slave traders, the overseers. These names are now respectable, even venerated--precisely because this phase of family history has been forgotten.

If we're serious about these issues, then we've got to know the names. And that's all that needs to be done, nothing else. We all have consciences--let them fulfill their function.
