The Russian Embassy in Washington on Monday welcomed the US decision to deport 95-year-old Friedrich Karl Berger to Germany. The latter served as an armed guard at the Neuengamme concentration camp during World War II.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media on Saturday, Berger was transported from the US to the central German city of Frankfurt under the Holtzman Amendment. The legislation envisages that all Nazi war criminals should be deported from the US. The deportation coincided with the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg trials against 24 top Nazi officials, held from 20 November 1945 to 1 October 1946.
"We welcome the #US actions aimed at finding Nazi criminals. The decision on the Berger case shows that the atrocities of the Hitlerite executioners and their accomplices have no statute of limitation. This is all the more important on the 75th anniversary of the #Nuremberg trials", the embassy wrote on Twitter.
