BERLIN—Germany's top Jewish organization on Tuesday condemned a medical organization's decision to bestow its top honor on a prominent physician who was once a member of the SS and the Nazi party.

That's a surprise they normally get given an American Passport,
Dr. Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr ('Baron')[1] von Braun (March 23, 1912 – June 16, 1977), a German physicist and astronautics engineer, became one of the leading figures in the development of rocket technology in Germany and the United States. Wernher von Braun is sometimes said to be the preeminent rocket scientist of the 20th century.

In his 20s and early 30s, Braun was the central figure in Germany's pre-war rocket development program, responsible for the design and realization of the V-2 combat rocket during World War II. After the war, he and some of his rocket team were brought to the United States as part of the then secret Operation Overcast. In 1955, ten years after entering the country, Braun became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

In the capital London 8938 people were killed by Rockets and 25,000 were seriously injured and many maimed for life. In addition over 2,000 British and US Airmen lost their lives attacking the Rocket sites.

I wonder how many people of Hebrew ancestry became worthwhile doctors under the guidance of Sewering. Seems to me that the policy of 'never forget' is just more hate.

The jury is out as to whether or not Chuchill was more dangerous than Hitler. WW2 lasted for 5 years and communism in the Eastern block lasted for 50 years. Destroyed millions more lives than the holocaust.

People really need to see some perspective from the eyes of those who fled their own homeland to live scattered and disowned all over the world whilst the so-called moral majority sat on their hands and let half of Europe be swallowed by the communist monster.

I really get tired of the self-pity promoted by haters.

Looking at the facts here, I find myself sitting on the fence and looking at both sides of the argument.

The only thing he did wrong was become a member of the nazi party. On the other hand he was a doctor who was committed to saving lives and not killing people. Also he admitted his nazi past and has not been convicted of any crime.

I still believe in the saying, innocent until proven guilty. Simply being a member of a political oranization is not, in itself, a crime.

Also, as Vonny has already pointed out, the Americans and to a lesser extent the Brits and Russians could not get enough of their scientists after the war. This move was a little hypocritical dont you think. Rocket teams helped the war in killing people. But a Nazi doctor?

... Nobel himself made his fortune with the invention of dynamite.

Ultimately, man's greatest act is not his ability to destroy but his capacity to understand, tolerate and make good. Once a person moves out of idealism and discovers the true value of their choices, it comes as a great surprise that given free choices, too few people wish good upon others. The moral high ground no longer excuses destructive actions, not even those done by the just.

And so did Yitzhak Rabin. Although, in order to stop the first Intifada, he ordered troops to "break the bones" of Palestinian youths throwing stones at tanks.
