- Oberlander editorial
- The first in a series of briefings on
police agency information data banks.
A friend faxed me the
following editorial from the K-W Record
regarding the deportation of Oberlander. I
believe it shows the ignorance and
contemptuous attitude of the modern liberal
who is unwilling to address the past in an
objective manner and forgive anyone (except,
that is, for ex-officio hard-line
communists) for their misdeeds. And
certainly, in Oberlander’s case, his only
misdeed is that he is German.
Was he ever convicted of a
crime against humanity?
Answer – NO
Was it ever proven that he,
in any way, aided or abetted the murder of
Answer – NO
Was it ever proven, beyond a
reasonable doubt, that he lied to
immigration officers about his involvement?
Answer -- NO
Why does the persecution
against a former army volunteer continue?
Answer -- Because this world is motivated by
greed and a political agenda supported by
deeply financed lobby groups.
RECORD, P. A10, March 22, 2000
It is extremely disturbing
that members of this community are so
uneducated about the Holocaust that they are
apologizing for Helmut Oberlander.
Oberlander served in a
relatively small group of 500 men who were
brought together for the express purpose of
killing Jews. Canadian immigration
procedures in the early 1950s would have
prevented this man from entering the country
if he had been honest about his wartime
The passage of 60 years does
not change the fact that this “old man”
worked as a translator in a mobile killing
Oberlander had a choice. It
has been well documented that the men
serving in these units were allowed to
return to their families or serve the Reich
in some other capacity if they did not have
the taste for murder.
Oberlander must be deported
or justice will not have been served. The
facts of the Holocaust speak for themselves.
Oberlander’s lawyer should feel ashamed of
himself. I feel he played on anti-semitism
in this community by making inflammatory
statements to the press that people will
“explode” if Oberlander is deported.
There are Holocaust survivors in this
community who live in fear of such
Now, I would like to turn my
attention to police departments, both
local and international, and how they
collect information on people. This is
important for several reasons, but
primarily I think it is essential that
we know what type of information the
police collect and how they store it so
we can better protect ourselves in the
