Nazi SS Soldiers Gaurd Nuremberg Trials 1946

Recommended Posts

Manwon Lender

The Nuremberg tribunal ruled that the 30,000 Estonians who had served in the Baltic Legions were conscripts, not volunteers, and defined them as freedom fighters protecting their homelands from a Soviet occupation and as such they were not true members of the criminal Waffen SS.

In the spring of 1946, out of the ranks of those Latvian and Estonian Waffen SS Soldiers who had surrendered to the Western allies in the previous year, a total of nine companies were formed. One of these units, the 4221st Guard Company, formed from some 300 men on 26 December 1946, guarded the external perimeter of the Nuremberg International Tribunal courthouse and the various depots and residences of US officers and prosecutors connected with the trial. The men also guarded the accused Nazi war criminals held in prison during the trial, up until the day of execution.

Makes sense. The Estonia division seems like it was really stuck between a rock and a hard place.

The only  reason they were given special treatment even though they were SS Soldiers was because they only fought on the Russian Front. After the Nuremberg Trials were complete, they could not return home because their homeland was occupied by the Russians . So they were given immigration status to allied countries , many immigrated to the United States in the early 1950s. 

Take Care

I hate  Nazism that  killed six million of the Jewish people :(occupied Poland

The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah,[c] was the World War II genocide of the European Jews. Between 1941 and 1945, across German-occupied Europe, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population.[a][d] The murders were carried out in pogroms and mass shootings; by a policy of extermination through work in concentration camps; and in gas chambers and gas vans in German extermination camps, chiefly Auschwitz, Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór, and Treblinka in occupied Poland.[4

 my dad is a full blooded polish  that hated it to.
