    Former commander in Nazi-led unit found living in Minnesota
    Michael Karkoc, 94, told authorities in 1949 he had performed no military service

    A top commander of a Nazi SS-led unit accused of burning villages filled with women and children lied to American immigration officials to get into the United States and has been living in Minnesota since shortly after the Second World War, according to evidence uncovered by The Associated Press.

    Michael Karkoc, 94, told American authorities in 1949 that he had performed no military service during the Second World War, concealing his work as an officer and founding member of the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defence Legion and later as an officer in the SS Galician Division, according to records obtained by the AP through a Freedom of Information Act request. The Galician Division and a Ukrainian nationalist organization he served in were both on a secret American government blacklist of organizations whose members were forbidden from entering the United States at the time.

    Though records do not show that Karkoc had a direct hand in war crimes, statements from men in his unit and other documentation confirm the Ukrainian company he commanded massacred civilians, and suggest that Karkoc was at the scene of these atrocities as the company leader.
    Nazi SS files say he and his unit were also involved in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, in which the Nazis brutally suppressed a Polish rebellion against German occupation.

    This guy was Ukrainian, there's a very good chance his membership and "founder status" was coerced and even if it wasn't his choices were Germany or the USSR and Stalin hadn't exactly been kind to the Ukraine prior to the war. The war ended in 1945, or 1958 if you're into conspiracy theories. It's time for Germany and Israel to let it go.

    So you are advocating a statue of limitations for mass murder and war crimes?

    He's entitled to a fair trial, do you think he can get one given the amount of time that has passed?

    OK, then in that context your opinion makes sense.

    I believe he should receive a fair trial but, to advocate a statue of limitations for his crimes is irrational!

    I never advocated a statute of limitations, what I did advocate is that Germany and Israel get over it. I personally don't think he can get a fair trial given the amount of time that has passed, the social and political climate that exists in Europe regarding National Socialism, and serve-serving testimony from witnesses who are no longer alive.

    You think he can and your opinion makes sense given that.

    I was referring to steve's comment.

    So, Jews should just "get over" the worst genocide in recorded history?

    Obviously you don't know anyone affected by the Holocaust or WWII for that matter.
