In Germany, 92-year-old former SS man is tried, he can spend the rest of his life in prison

On Monday, 92, a former SS officer Zirt Brains, accused of killing a Dutch partisan during World War II, will appear before the court in Hagen in western Germany. In the case of a conviction, a former SS man faces punishment of up to life imprisonment, the BBC Russian Service reports.


Aldert Klaas Dykema, a member of the resistance movement, was shot dead in September 1944 on the border of his occupied country with Germany, where Breins was born, an ethnic German born in the Netherlands. According to the prosecution, Brains released four bullets in the back to the captured partisan.

The former SS officer admits that he was at the scene of the crime, but insists that he did not shoot. In an interview with a German television program, he said that he was walking alongside a prisoner when he heard shots.

After the war, Brains lived in Germany, whose authorities refused to extradite him to the Netherlands, according to a British television and radio correspondent in Berlin. In 1980, Brains was sentenced by a West German court to seven years in prison in another case of the murder of two Jewish brothers.

The court in Hagen promises to be one of the last trials of Nazi war criminals in Germany. In December, 2011 of the year entered into force the sentence of another former SS man Heinrich Bere, who killed three civilians in the Netherlands.

    In the case of a guilty verdict, the former SS man faces a sentence of up to life imprisonment, reports the BBC Russian Service.
    It is certainly excellent that such crimes are not old, but something tells me that he will not sit, and even in the case of proof of guilt, they will find a reason not to apply punishment ..

      Take all of these Baltic deficiencies, which still hold marches and parades, and after the parade in bulk for the thorn. But in Europe, the Baltic fascists are looked at through the fingers, and even encouraged by fueling anti-Russian politics.

    Well, if the topic is, then in general it’s right, even if not for the rest of the days it will be torn. Anyway, let him feel the inevitability of punishment

      By all rules, everyone (!) Who fought on the Eastern Front should be in prison and for life. Including Luftwaffe pilots, and Kriegsmarine sailors. One way or another, on the hands of everyone is the blood of Soviet citizens.

      It’s just that in Germany, much reminds of the war and what the Nazis did ... entrants, for example, often go on excursions to former concentration camps and so on. on the streets there are copper tablets with the names of people who lived on this street or house and who died in concentration camps ... there are a lot of plates ... it is not uncommon when they are in front of every house on the old streets. They don’t let you forget.

    There is no excuse for German fascism as such. But I think the 92-year-old grandfather to the fascist can already find an excuse. In the end, it’s not his fault that he was born at that time in that country. All the fascists were there. But almost 70 years have passed. Let your grandfather calmly live his hard age.
    This is my purely personal opinion.

      if it turns out to be true what he is accused of, then he didn’t give such a chance to the people killed by him ... So that there is nothing to “punch through pity ...” Before he would give up, he would have already left, maybe ...

      There would have been many who were not fascists .. concentration camps were packed not only by Jews, Poles, Russians, but also Germans: communists and anti-fascists. For the sake of truth, there was still a lot of outright crime of persons ... hmm ... different orientations. But most Germans disagree with the regime. And they went to the SS voluntarily. They also got in line

        Yes, this is clear my friend. But still 92 years already. The claims are not for him, but whoever has been looking for him for so long has caught him. There is no need to count on the conscience of the accused. This I agree with the SS. There were no non-humans in the regular troops. Only in the SS. But now he is like a serpent without teeth.

          Unfortunately, nonhumans were everywhere, both in the SS and in the military units. The Americans in 1945-1950 conducted the following investigation: in the cells where the soldiers (namely the soldiers) of the Wehrmacht, who were participating in the war on the eastern front, were seated, their conversations were recorded on tape. And from these conversations (Stupidly helping pass the time in the cell) amers came terrified: the soldiers talked about torture, executions, gang rape as ordinary things, while no one regretted it, and in some places even boasted about what they were doing in the eastern territories ... ordinary soldiers ...

    It is good, of course, that this bastard did not escape retribution ... But how many scum were not given to us and they calmly survived in honor and well-being to their own death. I remember at the beginning of 90 the telecast was about traitors. One KGB investigator spent his whole life only traitors. Himself a front-line soldier. He told a wild case from his practice. There was a concentration camp near Pskov. More precisely, the death camp. One Estonian served there. The Germans even awarded him for his service. After the war, he changed his name and was considered a decent person. This investigator came to him in the late 80s. While writing inquiries, looking for witnesses, Estonia became independent. They refused to extradite him flatly. Moreover, a request came from Estonia: they asked to confirm the fact of the work of this comrade in a camp near Pskov. In order to include this period in his seniority for recalculation of pensions ...

      And we still have German henchmen being discovered. Not so long ago there was a plot on the box. One of the police officers after the war served his time, but then moved to another city, changed documents and even until recently headed the council of veterans. am ETOGES must be insolent!

        Petar Brzica (Croatian Petar Brzica; 1917 - 2007) is a Croatian war criminal accused of massacre of Serbs. He committed his crimes with a Serbose-knife. He was the “record holder” in the number of murders per night (1360 people). Catholic priest.

        Biography

        He graduated from Franciscan College in Shiroki Brijeg, studied at the Faculty of Law of the University of Zagreb. He was a member of the Great Order of the Crusaders. In his youth he became interested in nationalist ideas, joined the Ustasha party. In the army, NGH rose to the rank of lieutenant.

        August 29, 1942 took part in the competition for the killing of captured Serb prisoners of concentration camps and won, killing about 1360 people. Some historians claim that he did not kill thousands of people (how humane!), Which is not confirmed by numerous sources. As a reward, he received monetary encouragement and a nominal gold watch.

        In March 1943, he was beaten by captured Serbs in revenge for an act of genocide. Survived.

        After 1945 he fled to the USA, where he received citizenship and, possibly, changed his name. Attempts by Yugoslavia to extradite Brzitsa were unsuccessful; the center of Simon Wiesenthal did not help, despite long disputes and discussions with the United States.

        The US authorities, as in many other cases, provided very substantial assistance in securing a war criminal.

        Since the 1970s, traces of Brzitsa have been lost.

        In the 1990s, repeated demands to extradite Brzits were never satisfied. According to unconfirmed reports, in 2007 he was declared dead.
