Argentina, Italy block Erich Priebke funeral

 

(JNS.org) Argentinian, Italian and Catholic authorities have reportedly refused to bury the body of convicted Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke, or hold a funeral, Fox News reported. Priebke took part in a 1944 massacre outside of Rome that saw the deaths of 335 men and boys, including about 75 Jews. He was extradited from Argentina to Italy in 1995 and was later ordered to house arrest, where he remained until his death Friday at age 100. Reacting to the news, his son said his father can be buried in Israel, “so that they will be happy,” referring to Jews.

Calling his father a “victim,” Jorge Priebke told a Buenos Aires newspaper that “The case against my father is a forgery made by the Jews.”
