If we make people guilty of crimes that were not crimes at the time, we risk losing the moral absolute not only for the Jewish people, but for all time and all genocides. This late a date we don't know what he knew and when he knew it and what choices he had or should have made. These modern philosophic choices, 'When is an order illegal?" were not even thought of as questions at the time. We won. A clean, absolute victory. If we start dragging in blurry cases, 'What if he delivered food to the guards, shouldn't he be guilty of murder also?" "What if he merely fought on the German side, shouldn't that be also murder?" There are enough modern, current fresh cases where we don't have to go to a case where nobody knows what happened. Is it morally wrong to guard a gate if you suspect evil is being conducted on the other side? Half our military things we're doing something wrong, so every soldier can throw down his gun, or worse, shoot his commanding officer on a hunch? I think the search for justice has fresher fruit than a wild bullet shot into the past, if we 'win' this battle, we risk losing the whole war.
