The US has deported to Austria a former SS man it says was involved in the Nazi killing of more than 8,000 Jews, shot in a single day and buried in pits. Nasty bastard.
Josias Kumpf, 83, moved to the US from Austria in 1956, settling in Wisconsin and becoming a US citizen in 1964. Very slack, that.
The US justice department sued to strip him of his citizenship in 2003. A bit like locking the stable door after the horse has bolted, if you ask me.
He was found to have served as a guard at Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany and Trawniki in Poland, where the mass shooting took place in 1943.
Kumpf, not to be confused with the book of the same name, Mein Kumpf, written by cellar-dweller Josef Fritzl, was born in Serbia, joined the SS Totenkopf forces at Sachsenhausen in 1942, and served there for about a year before transferring to Trawniki.
An eerie similarity between Kumpf and Fritzl emerged yesterday, when it was discovered that Kumpf, like his countryman, also had a cellar.
