98-year-old Mark Karkoc of Minneapolis, Minnesota was accused of being a Nazi war criminal four years ago, after an investigation by the Associated Press unearthed evidence that he led a Ukrainian SS Unit in World War Two. Now Polish authorities want the man extradited so that he can stand trial for his crimes.

Polish Prosecutor Robert Janicki said that “all the pieces of evidence interwoven together allow us to say the person who lives in the U.S. is Michael K., who commanded the Ukrainian Self Defense Legion which carried out the pacification of Polish villages in the Lublin region.” The evidence is based on wartime documents, testimony from other men who served in the unit, and Karkoc’s memoirs.

Karkoc’s family denies the accusations, calling them “scandalous and baseless slanders.” His son says that “There’s nothing in the historical record that indicates my father had any role whatsoever in any type of war crime activity,” and that “my father’s identity has never been in question nor has it ever been hidden.”

The evidence provided by AP show that he was a leading member of the Ukrainian Self-Defense Legion and lied about that fact to American immigration officials, but found no proof that he participated in atrocities against civilians. However, 1968 testimony from a former soldier of the unit suggests that he did in fact order a retaliatory assault on a village after an SS major was killed.

Aside from questions of his guilt or innocence, there’s the question of whether or not he’s actually fit to stand trial. Prosecutors in Germany gave up on the case in 2015 when they received medical documents from doctors in the US who said he wasn’t fit for trial. His family claims that he has Alzheimer’s.

  • What about all of the former SS officers that the federal government immigrated to upsize the OSS into the CIA, under Operation Paperclip?
    Then there’s the German rocket scientists that were granted immunity at Nuremberg so that they could come over here and design boosters for our ICBMs and space shots.
    If this old man is one of them, he has probably earned his keep better than those who brought him into the country covertly and illegally. Keep an eye on him and let him live out the rest of his life, instead of making him the grist in some prosecutor’s conviction mill.

    What good will this do now? He will die soon enough all by himself. Let it rest.

    This proves that the U.S., the U.K., Israel, Sweden, and Germany, aren’t the only countries with legislators who have lost their minds.

    BUT

    soros & his family gets a pass

    really

    • Yes, really. Those evil Nazis have to pay, since they are responsible for the 6 gorillion Jews ‘gassed’ to death in the ‘concentration camps.’

  • Why are these fucking idiots hellbent on going after an old man who wants to simply live out the rest of his days in peace?

    Instead of going after every ‘Nazi,’ why don’t they focus their attention on the (((refugees))) that are invading their homeland and raping their women?

    • Phil_Ossifer

      That’s because going after Nazis is a Politically Correct thing to do. Nazis aren’t a protected group like the Muzzslimes are. Notice also how the same (((people))) who scream “Never forget!” are the same people who want Confederate statues and memorials removed…so that people will eventually forget the true history of the conflict?

      • It really is a travesty, considering that Hitler was the hero all along, and we were the villains, just like most wars in history.

  • frankw

    If They are so intent on prosecuting war criminals why don’t they start with the IDF? They could also dig up plenty in DC, London, and Tel Aviv.

    Next, they will go after the LifeGuards at the Auschitz pool! And then the soccer referees and perhaps even the orchestra conductor.
