A 95-year-old former Nazi concentration camp guard who has been
living in Tennessee was deported Saturday back to his home
country of Germany.
In February 2020, a Memphis immigration judge ruled that
Friedrich Karl Berger could be deported because he assisted in
"Nazi-sponsored persecution" when he served as an armed guard in
the Neuengamme Concentration Camp system, the Department of
Justice said in a press release.
The court found Berger guarded a camp near Meppen where Russian,
Jewish, Polish, Dutch and French prisoners were held. The judge
said the prisoners were kept in "atrocious" conditions and were
forced to do labor, working to the point of exhaustion and
death," the press release states.
The camp was abandoned in March 1945 and Berger helped move the
prisoners to another camp, the court found. The nearly two-week
trip to the new location was done under "inhumane conditions"
and some 70 prisoners died, officials said.
Berger acknowledged during his trial that he guarded the
prisoners to prevent them from escaping, did not request a
transfer from the concentration camp, and was still receiving a
pension from Germany for his wartime service, according to
Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson said Berger was deported
because the U.S. is not "a safe haven for those who have
participated in Nazi crimes."
The Department marshaled evidence that our Human Rights and
Special Prosecutions Section found in archives here and in
Europe, including records of the historic trial at Nuremberg of
the most notorious former leaders of the defeated Nazi regime,"
he said in a statement. "In this year in which we mark the 75th
anniversary of the Nuremberg convictions, this case shows that
the passage even of many decades will not deter the Department
from pursuing justice on behalf of the victims of Nazi crimes.
Berger told The Washington Post last year that he was 19 at the
time he was a guard and was forced to work at the camp. He said
he made a life in the United States building wire-stripping
After 75 years, this is ridiculous. I cannot believe it. I
cannot understand how this can happen in a country like this.
Youre forcing me out of my home," he said.
That life when the Jew cocksuckers have the ear of Democrat
Jews have short memories and they prefer to ignore the same
events involving Russians. Why? Because the Russians will come
kill their lying spiteful asses.
