Karl Otto Koch was handed his punishment of execution by famous prosecutor SS judge Konrad Morgen, his execution took place in 1945.
If the German National Socialist Government supposedly encouraged their soldiers to murder Jews, why was Karl Otto Koch punished for his deeds?
Great point Haldan.
I took classes with a Jewish European History professor (frequently cited by Kevin MacDonald coincidentally.)
Check out what he said: regarding the 20's and 30's labor movement this professor commented on how orderly and "by the book" Germans were in contrast to everyone else. He'd laugh and say how you'd have a bunch of burly workers show up at a factory and present a permit to strike, or protest, and if the factory management pointed out that the permit wasn't valid or was out of date. The workers would accept it and instantly leave. THEY WENT BY THE BOOK. This is a cultural trait of the Germans. It stands in contrast to Italians who don't have that same "orderliness" in their culture. Anybody who has been to both of those countries can see that in the first hour of their visit.
So if Italians had made up a bunch of stories about the Germans, guess what? They would either overplay or underplay the orderliness cultural trait. Americans do that too: Ever see "Sprockets" on Saturday Night Live on American television? That's overplaying this cultural trait. And that's what Polish Yiddish did. You'd have the overly orderly Himmler figure goose-stepping all over the place. But in the next breath there is Hirtreiter staging gymnastic events where the losers were shot.
