I understand what these people did. World war 2 had ended in 1945. That was 70 years ago. A couple hundred years ago we killed thousands of American Indians because we invaded their land and put them to work. The people that did it are still called heroes today. No one would have hunted them down if they were alive. These people were just following their gut. Some of them were good people as well. They snuck bread to dying children or were doctors in the infirmaries. They helped people. All the people that they killed are still on their record but when they risk their life for another they get nothing. We are currently trying to find 50 Auschwitz guards. We are not talking about the leaders of the whole operation. We are talking about people who served their country. Anyone who goes to war kills someone and this might have been a way not to get killed. If they were to quit or break the rules and help people they would end up killed as well. You can't blame them for what they did 70 years ago. People can change after seeing that much death. I could see them being very remorseful. I don't think it is fair if they are forced to die in the least welcoming and comfortable place in the world. They know so much about history that we don't. Instead of hiding they could write a book. I would read it. It would be a different spin on things because all we know is the Jew's stories. It would be fun to explore the other side.

Dr Who had a great solution for this, of using time travel to track them down while they are still alive, then torturing them (or at least the worst offenders among them).

They're nearly all dead now. If they did that 70 years ago and they were 20 at the time, then that would make them 90 years old.
