Nazi war criminal Søren Kam dies a free man at 93

It is said that justice delayed is justice denied. But if justice fails to catch up with the culprit during his lifetime, then it becomes a bad joke played on the victim.

Right now, the butt of one such bad joke is the Jewish community in general and the Jewish rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center which aims to bring Nazi war criminals from the erstwhile Third Reich to  justice.  

Former Nazi officer, Søren Kam, who was fifth in the Simon Wiesenthal Center most wanted Nazi offender list died a free man in Kempten, Germany on 23rd March.

He was involved in the murder of Danish anti-Nazi newspaper editor Carl Henrik Clemmensen in 1943. He was found guilty in an in absentia trial  for the murder by a Danish court. Søren Kam escaped conviction by fleeing to Germany, where he was granted citizenship and never extradited to Denmark as a German court considered his crime manslaughter, not murder.  

‘The fact that Søren Kam, a totally unrepentant Nazi murderer, died a free man in Kempten (Germany), is a terrible failure of the Bavarian judicial authorities.’ Dr Efraim Zuroff, from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said in a statement.

Kam was awarded Knight’s Cross, the highest Nazi honor for valor in battle by Adolf Hitler in 1945.
