Confronting Ex-SS Officer

Did they ever talk to you about what they had done during the war?

No. Nobody knew nothing.


Nobody knew nothing and nobody was responsible for anything. That's the, that's the nicest part about the bake...from the baker, he was an SS. And he was scared to death, you know. And I said to him once, "I know you were an SS. But what I'm going to gain if I put you to jail or if I kill you? Will my people come back?" I told him that. I was outspoken. I, I didn't, I didn't fool around with them. But like I say, they were really nice, really nice. When my Allan was born, they didn't know what to do. Everybody brought something else. This one brought a ???, this one brought a bed, this one brought a bed. They didn't know what to do with me. And he was born in that village, in 1946. My Allan speaks fluently uh, German, too. You know where he works? The New York Times.
