…The finds were uncovered at three sites in the Arnsberg forest, where members of the Waffen-SS and German army massacred 208 Polish and Russian forced laborers in March 1945, just before the end of World War II…

Evil. The war's over so why not just let them go?

I can think of a reason:

We should always try to remember victims and what they went through, not just pave it over and forget.

Maybe the Nazis thought they were better off with dead victims rather than live victims. frown

Wonder if anyone is doing any digging in East Prussia?

Dead men, women, children tell no tales…

Live victims = witnesses = war crime guilty verdicts. That's part of the reason for these evil acts.

An act of desperation by evil men attempting to escape justice. I wonder if anyone was ever made to pay for these crimes?

Just another very sad incident in a war so full of such horrors …

We can't forget, as we must remember such heinous acts … so as to not let them happen again.

But it seems … that has not happened yet …

I cannot even begin to comprehend evil of that magnitude.

Sadly I fear such horrors still go on. Bosnia anyone?

A more current horror would have been Syria.

Yes, Syria has been a very large step to the rear for mankind. And A'stan … well seems there was never too many steps forward.
