The case announced against Peter Egner, the Bellevue man accused by the Justice Department of being a war criminal in the service of the Nazis, seems to be all about the actions of a unit. Maybe I am mistaken, and all the solid evidence will come out at trial, but that is what it looks like now. Egner has admitted to being in the Security Police and Security Service, a unit of the German occupation government of Yugoslavia. The Justice Department says he was also part of the Belgrade Einsatzgruppe, an SPSS group that in 1941 put several thousand Jews, communists and gypsies to death by carbon monoxide poisoning, using trucks. But they don’t seem to have evidence about him, personally.
