Does anyone think of the latest move to prosecute Nazi war criminals as something justifiable?
It was reported today that the Simon Wiesenthal Center has decided to pay for information that can lead to capture of Nazi war criminals. The reward for this endeavor goes up to $33,000 and the reason they are pursuing this is based on the successful conviction of John Demjanjuk who was 91 years at time of capture. But considering that most of these "criminals" are old and knocking on death's door, is pursing them a human thing in a world where most people are calling for a show of human love and forgiveness, or is this just based on seeking revenge and retribution? As humans can we factor in their remorse or the duress of being under orders as we make a call on what they did?
