“Hundreds” of suspected Nazi war criminals freed by Britain throughout Cold War



Earlier this week it was revealed that during the Cold War, under pressure from the USA, Britain released “hundreds” of suspected Nazi war criminals from captivity, many of whom had been involved in The Holocaust (1933 – 1945). This information came courtesy of Dr. Dan Plesch, who is director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS, University of London. Doctor Plesch uncovered documents from the United Nations War Crimes Commission which showed that ex-Nazis were discharged from British prisons in order to build the Western powers’ allegiance with Germany.

According to The Jewish Chronicle among the Nazi officers freed were: Oskar Groening (pictured), otherwise known as the “Bookkeeper of Auschwitz,” Erich von Manstein, Gerd von Rundstedt and Albert Kesselring.
