Danish Nazis killed 1,400 Jews in WWII: new book
Published: 15 Oct 2014 14:31 GMT+02:00
A newly-released book alleges that Danish Nazis actively participated in the murder of 1,400 Jews at a prison camp in Belarus during World War II.
Now two Danes may face an investigation of their 70-year-old crimes.
The Danish People’s Party (DF) wants to see police investigate the claims in the new book, En skole i vold (A school of violence), and if necessary to prosecute the two living Danes who remain from the 800-man corps of Danish Nazis known as Free Corps Denmark (Frikorps Danmark).
“This isn’t about putting an old man in prison but rather about clearing up what happened back then. I think there should be a case against him, so I will make a request to the justice minister,” DF’s Peter Skaarup told DR, referring specifically to one of the surviving Danes, an 89-year-old man who has spoken about his time with Frikorps Danmark.
The other surviving Danish Nazi has not spoken publicly about what happened in Belarus.
