  • Former Nazi Officer’s Plea for Mercy Rejected

    janvier 18, 2018

    The mercy plea of Oskar Gröning, a 96-year-old former Nazi officer, has been denied. On July 15, 2015, Mr Gröning, who is also called the ‘bookkeeper of Auschwitz’, was condemned of being “guilty of aiding and abetting murder in three hundred thousand legally concurrent cases”, referring to the 300,000 murders that took place in the Nazi death camp Auschwitz during the Second World War. During the trial of 2015, Oskar Gröning expressly admitted moral guilt, but not criminal guilt.

  • Nuremberg Its Lesson for Today – Film Review

    novembre 12, 2015

    While watching the documentary, its purpose is impossible to miss: the didactic aim of the film can be deduced from the title and the tone of the film itself is pedantic – informing the public of the evils of the regime and its leaders.

Interestingly enough, these video fragments of pre-war Germany were recorded by the Nazis themselves.
