Germay Plans to Rehabilitate Nazi Traitors

by | 29th, June 2007

FROM Germany:

Most of the 30,000 Germans sentenced to death by Nazi Germany’s military courts have been rehabilitated. So far, however, soldiers found guilty of treason — in many cases unjustly, have been excluded. Now, though, Germany’s parliament may be prepared to do just that.

The Nazis executed more than 30,000 Wehrmacht soldiers. Thousands, however, still bear the scarlet letter of conviction — in many cases unjustly.

Consider the case of the German soldier who, in May 1944, attempted to smuggle 13 Jews out of Hungary into Romania in order to save them from the Auschwitz gas chambers. At a border check, his illegal cargo was discovered hiding in the back of his army truck. A military court sentenced the soldier, whose name has been lost to history, to death for treason.

It takes brave man to make a stand…
