  •  This diary appears to be a fabrication (0+ / 0-)

    Based on HER's first name, I researched Nazi war criminals with that name who were executed and learned that the source of HER's name was considered one of the most brutal guards in Aushwitz, was closely associated with Josef Mengele, and was hanged shortly after turning 22 years old for crimes against humanity.

    Auschwitz was liberated on January 17, 1945.  The Auschwitz trial defendants were executed on January 28, 1948.

    If this person was executed "shortly after turning 22 years old" then he must have just turned 19 when Auschwitz was liberated.

    That's a little young to be "one of the most brutal guards in Auschwitz" and to be closely associated with Josef Mengele.

    I couldn't find any list of the ages of all the guards who were executed, but there is no mention of any of them having been particularly young and all of the notable ones (and presumably "one of the most brutal guards in Aushwitz" who "was closely associated with Josef Mengele" would have been notable) were substantially older than 22 when they were executed.
