It was alleged that George Soros was a Nazi officer. He reportedly served under the Fuhrer himself and Heinrich Himmler. Is this true?
George Soros: A Nazi Officer?
A black-and-white photograph has surfaced on Facebook allegedly showing a young George Soros. In addition, the photo shows him wearing an SS uniform.
According to the Facebook photo, Soros was allegedly a Schutzstaffel (SS) in the National Socialist German workers party, or the Nazi party.
“He said it was the best time of his life. The destruction and agony around him was euphoric to him,” the caption of the photo, posted on Americans Against The Democrat Party, said.
“This man was making policy with Hillary Clinton. And some of you think Trump is dangerous. Wow!”
It was previously alleged that Soros helped the Nazis during the Holocaust. In 1944, when Nazis took control of Hungary, Soros was a Jew teenager.
To save himself from the tyranny of the Nazis, Soros was said to have helped steal Jewish property. He also reportedly sent Jews to die in death camps to save himself.
This was revealed during an interview, according to a report. Furthermore, it was said that Soros showed no remorse or guilt for what he had done, as per Freedom Outpost.
George Soros: Nazi Officer Story Untrue?
Soros has been frequently targeted by smear campaigns. However, this one is the biggest as of now.
The story could be easily debunked. During 1930, the Hungarian billionaire was only nine, and when WWII ended, he was only fifteen, according to Soros’ official website. He was too young to become an SS Nazi officer. Moreover, Soros did not have that “Aryan” background to become Schutzstaffel in the Nazi party.
Furthermore, the young officer in Waffen SS uniform in the photograph was none other than Oskar Groening. He was a Nazi accountant who served at Auschwitz from 1942 through the end of World War II.
Groening was found guilty of war crimes. He was an accessory to the murder of at least 300,000 Jews.
