Tell that to the Israeli Nazi hunters, just because a crime was committed 60 years ago doesn't make them any less guilty. I'm also not getting "worked up" over it. I remain impartial over historical discourse because that's the correct way to study history. My claim is that the Germans had a large part to play in the wickedness of their regime and I provided examples to back up my PoV. .
Should the culprits be allowed to get away with it because 60 years have passed and they grew old? How about the poor victims - men, women and children- who were deprived of their lives, never got the chance or option to live those 60 years and grow old?
Some people voted for and continued to support (often to the bitter end) a depraved regime, the leader of which made it clear, in print, years in advance, just what were his views and goals. Should they bear some sort of responsibility?
On the whole however, it is the finger that pulls the trigger that bears the responsibility for atrocities and one cannot attribute blame to generic groups which will certainly contain very many people entirely innocent of any wrongdoing.
