For those of you who do not like the Daily Mail I am warning you in advance. ;)

Germans give former SS doctor accused of killing 900 children a medal

A former SS doctor accused of sending 900 sick children to their deaths under the Nazi euthanasia programme has been awarded a German medical association's highest honour.
The decision comes as Jewish organisations continue to press Germany to put 92-year-old Hans-Joachim Sewering on trial for mass murder.
He was given the Guenther-Budelmann medal by the German Federation of Internal Medicine for "unequalled services in the cause of freedom of the practice and the independence of the medical profession and to the nation's health system".

I am stuck for words and rather miffed.

I share your sentiment, guys. Here's another take on the issue, this time from the Independent from UK.

It's amazing what people today condemn and accept. Oh, Richard and all the guys here from the UK, thanks. Because of your banter, I've developed a health interest at perusing your various periodicals, dailies and tabloids.

Incredible.....think about the comfy life he lived all those years as a doctor. He may regret the medal when its brought this much attention to his horrific deeds.
