Why are "they" afraid to mention his name"
Is it because "prying eyes" might ask for proof?
This sure is Orwellian.
His name is Hubert Zafke: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... eople.html
Apparently, "medics often poured Zyklon-B pesticide into the gas chambers to kill them," and "Although classed as a medic, such personnel at Auschwitz were not concerned with the health of inmates, but often poured in the Zyklon-B pesticide crystals into the gas chamber to murder them."
And, "Zafke does not deny his service at Auschwitz but claims: 'I heard nothing, saw nothing, killed no-one.'
"in 1948 he was sentenced by a Polish court because of his S.S. membership to three years in jail,, returning to Neubrandenburg in Germany after serving his time... Zafka was present when Anne Frank came in on a train from Holland's Westerbork concentration camp on September 5, 1944 carrying 498 men, 442 women and 79 children... The indictment shows that Zafke, who now lives in the tiny village of Gnevkow north of Berlin, joined the Hitler Youth when he was a teenager in his hometown of Schoenau, which now lies in Poland... The son of a farmer, he attended high school and an agricultural college intending to follow in his father's footsteps. In 1933, aged 13, he joined the Hitler Youth and six years later was in the S.S. He received his grounding in concentration camp training at Dachau, the first of the Nazi camps where 36,000 people were murdered during its 12 years of operation. As a junior squad leader – a rank usually given to men singled out as future officer material – Zafke transferred to Auschwitz in the summer of 1944... Auschwitz was liberated by the Red Army on January 27 1945, now World Holocaust Day, but Zafke had already gone west and fell into British hands. He was later transferred back to Poland where he was given his jail sentence in 1948 for his membership in the S.S. and service at Auschwitz. He returned to Germany, married and fathered four sons who he brought up in Gnevkow... He made a career out of manufacturing and selling agricultural products, including pesticides."
I wonder if he denies the gas chambers, etc. or will go the way of Oskar Groning
