Pas de prescription pour les crimes nazis - "No Statute of Limitations for Nazi Crimes" - Published by Fédération internationale des résistants . France
A booklet published by the International Federation of Resistance Fighters ahead of the expiration of the statute of limitations of the German laws dealing with Nazi war criminals. On May 8, 1965, the statute of limitations was supposed to take effect on the punishments established by the German law against Nazi war criminals. The Bonn government of Germany announced that it would not extend them, effectively allowing Nazi war criminals to evade justice and regain civilian rights. There were also many delays and postponements in prosecuting Nazi war criminals residing in Germany even during the years when the law was still in effect. The Federation argues that there is and will be no statute of limitations for Nazi war crimes, and that victims of Nazism and resistance fighters will not tolerate this. The booklet details provisions adopted at the Vienna Committee conference in December 1964, mainly calling for no amnesty to be granted to Nazi war criminals who evaded punishment through the German statute of limitations law, and appealing to mobilize public opinion so that May 20th, Europe Liberation Day, does not become a day of freedom for war criminals.
At the beginning is a detailed description of the Nazi war crimes according to the articles - crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and a planned conspiracy aimed at concealing the crimes. At the end are harsh photographs documenting Nazi crimes - mass executions, torture, and hanging of the innocent. Attached at the end is an unfolding map of the death camps.
