Nazi Barbarian captured alive!

The Israeli Prime Minister’s office announced to the world today that Nazi war criminal Albrecht von Vandenberg, known popularly as “The Barbarian of Sobibor”, has been captured and will stand trial in Israel. Von Vandenberg, the Nazi SS officer who performed brutal medical and supposed occult experiments on an estimated 1,500 Polish and Russian Jews, and was involved in the extermination of more than 200,000 more, was arrested in Austria last Friday.
Von Vandenberg was born in Leipzig, Germany, in 1908. A very successful medical student and intern, he caught the eye of Adolf Eichmann, head the Jewish section of the SS central security office in Berlin. In December 1941, he joined the Nazi's elite SS (Schutzstaffel) organization, whose members came to have broad responsibilities in Nazi Germany, including policing, intelligence, and the enforcement of Adolf Hitler's anti-Semitic policies.
In January 1942, top Nazi officials met at the Wannsee Conference near Berlin for the purpose of planning a "final solution of the Jewish question," as Nazi leader Hermann Goring put it. The Nazis decided to exterminate Europe's Jewish population. Von Vandenberg was appointed as chief physician to the Sobibor Extermination camp in occupied Poland, one of the camps where Jews were gassed or worked to death. His main duty was to find the most effective means in which to exterminate large masses of human beings at once. He carried this duty out with horrifying efficiency, and between three to four million Jews perished in the extermination camps across Europe before the end of World War II. Close to 2 million were executed elsewhere.
“The Barbarian’s” experiments were carried out at the behest of his contemporary, Dr Josef Mengele, the Auschwitz Extermination Camp’s infamous “Angel of Death.” The two corresponded extensively concerning the brutal work that they carried out. Incomplete journals of their grisly research have been recovered and studied throughout the years.
In 1943, just months before the successful prisoner uprising at Sobibor, Von Vandenberg was reassigned to the Dachau Prison camp to assist with medical experiments funded by Ahnenerbe, the Nazi think tank whose goal was to research the anthropological and cultural history of the Aryan race, and later to experiment and launch voyages with the intent of proving that prehistoric and mythological Nordic populations had once ruled the world. He conducted Eugenics experiments there and also served on several “mysterious” expeditions all over the world.
Following the war, Von Vandenberg was captured by U.S. troops, but he escaped in 1946 before having to face the Nuremberg International War Crimes Tribunal. Von Vandenberg traveled under an assumed identity between Europe and the Middle East and in 1950 arrived in Argentina, which maintained lax immigration policies and was a safe haven for many Nazi war criminals. In 1957, a German prosecutor secretly informed Israel that Von Vandenberg was living in Argentina. Agents from Israel's intelligence service, the Mossad, were deployed to Argentina, and in early 1960 they finally located Von Vandenberg. He was living in the Buenos Aires under the name Diego Salazar. When his friend and mentor Adolf Eichmann was captured by Mossad agents, Von Vandenberg was tipped off and disappeared mere minutes before he was to be taken. He fled to Cuba, where he successfully eluded capture for the next 40 years.
Recently, Von Vandenberg was diagnosed with liver cancer and had begun chemotherapy in Cuba. He was eventually referred to a doctor in Innsbrook, Austria. What he was not aware of was that Israeli intelligence had become aware of Von Vandenberg’s location in 1999, and was simply waiting for an opportunity to nab him. Once outside of Cuba and in cooperation with Austrian officials, he was met at the gate by Israeli authorities. Sources close to the case suggest that Von Vandenberg was aware of him impending capture and simply resigned himself to it.
Despite protestations by the Cuban government, who cited entrapment of a naturalized citizen of that country, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu argued on Thursday that Von Vandenberg’s status as an international war criminal gave Israel the right to proceed with a trial. A hearing as to the validity of this argument is scheduled to begin on April 11th at The Hague.

Hague finds Barbarian must stand trial – Charges are officially filed.

Proceedings have begun in the upcoming trial of Albrecht von Vandenberg, known popularly as “The Barbarian of Sobibor”, who was captured last month while seeking cancer treatment in Austria. Von Vandenberg had been residing in Cuba for over 40 years after a failed attempt at his capture in Argentina in 1960. Known for his grisly medical experiments at the Polish death camp in Sobibor, von Vandenberg’s capture is considered a great victory for his victims and their families. Cuba demanded Von Vandenberg's return, but Israel argued that his status as an international war criminal gave it the right to proceed with a trial. Today, The International Criminal Court sided with Israel, citing Von Vandernberg’s crimes as “far too great to allow not to be investigated.” He faces 15 charges, including crimes against humanity, crimes against the Jewish people, and war crimes. The Trial is set to begin August 9th.

Barbarian Pleads Guilty!

May 1st, 2002

Albrecht Von Vandenberg, the infamous Nazi Physician known as “The Barbarian of Sobibor”, pled guilty today to all 15 counts against him, including crimes against humanity, conspiracy to commit genocide, general war crimes, and crimes against the Jewish people. In a prepared statement read by his lawyer, Von Vandenberg claimed he was just following orders, but was willing to accept the blame as he carried them out. Witnesses claim that Von Vandenberg remained quiet and emotionless as the charges were levied against them, and seemingly smiled when his plea was entered.
With the guilty plea entered, sentencing began immediately. At the behest of the United Nations, as well as a coalition of the death camp survivors, the death penalty was removed as a possible sentence. It is expected that he will be sentenced to life in prison.

Nazi Barbarian Dead!

Albrecht Von Vandenberg, the infamous Nazi Physician known as “The Barbarian of Sobibor”, was murdered in his prison cell, not 24 hours after he entered a plea of guilty for 15 counts of crimes varying from genocide to torture. Sources report that Von Vandenberg was likely killed approximately 12:35am, although his actual body was not discovered until almost 3:30am. He was slashed across the throat and left to bleed to death.
“The attack must have been quick and brutal’ said Chief Warden Hans Hergersheimer. “We also suspect that someone altered our security cameras, as we have no record of the attack taking place.”
The Israeli government was quick to deny any implication in the murder. “We have sided with our friends at the U.N. and abided by the wish of the survivors of the Shoah who requested that no more death arises from the existence of this man, even his own.”
Authorities have not ruled out some manner of conspiracy to kill Von Vandenberg, however. “He did some horrible things to a lot of people” said Hergersheimer. “We can’t really be that surprised.”
