Trivia

In Krakow, Poland the trial of the principal culprits for the Auschwitz concentration camp was tried before a Polish court. The defendants were German camp guards or members of the German camp administration staff. Unheard-of atrocities against the camp inmates, particularly against female prisoners, were proved against them. Altogether nearly 1 100,000 people from the most different nations died in the Auschwitz concentration camp. 90% were Jews. The court sentenced 23 of the accused to death, six to life sentences, and ten to lengthy jail terms; one was acquitted. The Auschwitz concentration camp remains as it stands, as a monument of shame to the lasting memory of its three hundred thousand victims. See more »
