English: Remembering his last words that his children would be left without a father, before being hanged by the Russians.
As if this sinister character, were not guilty of the death of thousands ..
Rainer ... I admire that courage of your part in facing this, assuming that you are only his grandson, and that you put yourself in the place of his victims ..
Greetings from Chile ...

of another person, especially if that person felt nothing at all. Which I no longer know bc I read an encyclopedia article about Rudolf Höss, (in English bc that's the only language I can read in) that sounded like he was filled to the brim with regret before his execution day arrived.
Since his statement was in direct quotes, I had a hard time not believing it was genuinely written by him. Now I'm confused abt whether he was sorry for what he did.
Someone in my family was murdered bc of hatred, in a capital way (the surviving murderers who plotted the crime qualify for the death sentence because they killed almost 3,000 people) and not even ONE of them has expressed the thinnest wisp of regret. In fact, it's been quite the opposite; they appear thrilled that they did it.
So when I saw that Rudolf Höss had expressed regrets and had done so three different times, it was difficult to remain hardened.
Not that I could forgive him if I knew someone he'd had murdered, but until I read that article I didn't even know he'd said the words.
One of Eric's killers did do that but then they freed him completely & freeing him completely while Eric and the others remain dead was totally NOT OK with me. And anyway, all he said was "I won't do that anymore." That's not obvious IMO if he was truly sorry, but I didn't think he should be released from prison bc he said "I won't do it anymore."
I have the hardest time with forgiveness of the actual person who did it but after watching a television series in the US called "Evil Lives Here," that focuses on family members of murderers and how they deal with being given that for a family member, I've been able to avoid blaming the family - for the most part.
I've only had issues with a few but I don't think Rainer Höss is like that. I honestly don't. I was a little concerned at first but not now. Not since I saw the download abt Mauthausen concentration camp and the possibility of trying a guard who worked there. I believe in that type of justice & I don't see why his age should prevent it. They interviewed people in Germany about other trials that have already taken place and some people said they thought the man was too old to try for crimes committed when he was a young man. My native German boyfriend & I disagreed, for different reasons. I'm American. I'm only half German. My dad was German.

So a computer glitch cut off my sentence.
I meant to say I don't believe a person should feel responsible for the crimes of another person, especially if that person felt nothing at all for their crimes.
