Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    The the chief judge in Munich said that much of the evidence given at the trial was unreliable. Of course, more than 60 years passed! But why mr.Niznansky escaped trial previously? (then possible witnesses were alive). Only his command position in Edelweiss unit was a sufficient ground for the investigation.

    I have heard (in Soviet times) that Radio Freedom staff is mainly war-criminals. I thought that it was a Soviet propaganda.

    Maybe it would be right to close all similar cases? Possible war-criminals are too old. What do you think? Personally, I don't know the right answer.

    I doubt that an expression 'killers of the Holocaust' should be used in this context. Nationality of innocent victims is irrelevant.
