Default Convicted Auschwitz guard dies before jail

A former Nazi SS guard who was known as the "Bookkeeper of Auschwitz" has died aged 96, German media report. In 2015 Oskar Gröning was sentenced to four years' imprisonment, but never began his prison sentence due to a series of appeals. He died in a hospital on Friday, according to Spiegel Online. The pensioner was convicted of being an accessory to the murder of 300,000 Jews at the camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. His job at Auschwitz was to itemise money and valuables taken from new arrivals, who were then killed or subjected to slave labour. Though a court doctor found that he was fit for prison with appropriate medical supervision, his jail term was repeatedly delayed by ill-health and requests for clemency.

When the war was over, Gröning slipped into a quiet life in Lüneburg Heath, Lower Saxony, where he worked in a glass-making factory. Decades later, when he heard people denying the Holocaust had ever happened, he was moved to break his silence. He was one of very few former concentration camp guards to do so. "I saw the gas chambers. I saw the crematoria," he told the BBC in the 2005 documentary Auschwitz: the Nazis and the "Final Solution".

He should have been definitely jailed in 2005 but preferably jailed straight after the war.

So saddened at the loss of Sir Ken Dodd - a man who should in my opinion have been knighted decades earlier. It's especially poignant because now that he's gone, we have virtually no surviving links to the great days of British variety theatre. It lives on through recorded media, but that's small consolation. Oh, what I'd give to have been around fifty years ago and been able to see him at his peak, in a crowded theatre by the seaside.

RIP Doddy. Thanks for all the plumptious laughs, and for making our lives so tattifilarious.

I did see him - around about fifty years ago - at the seaside. At Scarborough on a family trip to the theatre.

The sad thing is that being only about twelve years old, I didn't really appreciate what I was seeing.. He was just another "man off the telly". Yes, we laughed at his routine and his jokes but at that age it was nothing special..

I wish I had known then that he was such a fantastic raconteur and comedian and that I was in the presence of a rare genius of his trade..

RIP Doddy...

I saw him at Scarborough 50 odd years ago too. He was hilarious.

I've noticed that as well, the way it's been strongly emphasized that all the comedians and entertainers of that era are now all gone and that that age is now over.

Mind you, he had one hell of a long career though!

They published some of his greatest jokes in the paper today including such classic as:

"I haven't spoken to my mother-in-law for 18 months. I don't like to interrupt her."

"I did 25 minutes running on the spot this morning-I had my braces caught in the banister."

"It's 10 years since I went out of my mind. I'd never go back."

"I used to think that I was good in bed until I discovered that all my girlfriends had asthma."

"I just read a book about Stockholm Syndrome-it started out badly but towards the end I really liked it."

" I have kleptomania-when it gets bad I take something for it."

^ Just saw this.

He lasted a long time, considering his condition. What a loss. He contributed a lot.

RIP.

He appeared as himself in Star Trek TNG playing cards with Albert Eistein and in The Simpsons but I remember a reasonable facsimile of him appeared in an episode of 'Dexter's Laboratory' where young boy genius Dexter wins a prize to meet the famous Professor Hawk who hovers around in a flying saucer-type wheelchair and even has his own song. Obviously inspired by Steven Hawking and only two years ago he appeared in a Comic Relief sketch AND filmed a special sequence about the universe with Professor Brian Cox(he ran him over on his wheelchair) which was brilliant. I also believe he appeared at the Monty Python show because Eric Idle did his special song about the Universe which has appeared in the film The Meaning of Life.

Greatest thinker and scientist of the 20th century and now at peace. If you've not seen Eddie Redmayne as him in The Theory of Everything I urge you to see it.

I don't know if I can agree with Greenman here because the 20th century has spawned many great minds but Stephen Hawking was among them.

He once said that he's not afraid of death but that he's not in a hurry either. Despite his condition and his doctors' fatalist prediction, Mr. Hawking led a long and productive life. His knowledge and wit will be missed.

The Star Trek TNG episode in which he plays poker against a touchy Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Data is one of my favorites. It's the opening scene of "The Descent - Part I", the final episode of S6 in which Data is seduced to the dark side by his brother Lore.

Rest in peace, Professor Hawking.
