 The Belsen Trial - The trail of Commandant Josef Kramer and 44 others   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Commandant Josef Kramer was arrested on April 15, 1945, the same day that British Army troops entered the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and the adjacent German Army Training Center, after a cease-fire agreement had been voluntarily negotiated by the German Army in order to allow the British to take control of the camp.
Over this disposal, Kramer had no authority, and his real position should be compared with that of a Commanding Officer of a transit camp, whose responsibility was confined to the administration of the people inside the camp until a posting order was received.
Kramer admitted that he often, in the course of duty, stopped and watched the selections, and he denied categorically that he himself made the selections, and he also denied that on behalf of his S.S. staff.

 Bergen-Belsen
Commandant Josef Kramer quarantined the camp in an effort to save lives, but SS camp administration headquarters in Berlin insisted that Belsen be kept open to receive still more Jewish evacuees arriving from the East.
Kramer's clear conscience is also suggested by the fact that he made no effort to save his life by fleeing, but instead calmly awaited the approaching British forces, naively confident of decent treatment.
Commandant Kramer, who was vilified in the British and American press as "The Beast of Belsen" and "The Monster of Belsen," was put on trial and then executed, along with chief physician Dr. Fritz Klein and other camp officials.

So far as one knows, Belsen was originally a small camp, a transit camp, but at the end of November of last year Josef Kramer, who had been in the concentration camp service throughout the period of Nazi ascendancy, having joined as a volunteer in 1932, was called to Berlin.
Kramer says he did everything he could to try to provide food for these poor people, to try and provide water for them and to see to their health and well-being.
Kramer will tell you that the reason he could not get food was because it came from Celle and Hanover, but it in fact came from the Wehrmacht Camp.

In a court of law, it is difficult to find more convincing proof than a confession, and the confession of SS officer Josef Kramer — who was in charge of the gas chambers and crematoria at Auschwitz-Birkenau — is particularly compelling.
Kramer was first assigned to Auschwitz as an aide-de-camp to commandant Rudolf Hoess in 1940.
Although Kramer testified that he had personally forced people into gas chambers, and listened outside as they asphyxiated, he claimed not to know whether the chambers were part of a project "to try and exterminate the Jewish race and all the intelligent people of Poland....

Il est probable que Kramer se souciait peu de la vie de juifs ou de condamnés; cependant, on si on voulait excuser les décès de Bergen-Belsen par une imbécillité supposée de Kramer ou par son incompétence; c'est impossible pour le gazage du Struthof qui est incontestablement une attitude volontaire.

[Josef Kramer is wrong about time intervals between successive groups, including arrival, residence in the camp and gassing, of the convoys; even though the arrivals and the gassings were probably both staggered over time, the future victims were all gathered in Struthof at the beginning of the week 7-14 August 1943.

Photos were taken of her side by side with Kramer, as if she had somehow held a position of power equal to his, and was in some way his partner.
