Limits of human justice

Richard Lichtheim, when he heard of the deportation of the Jews to concentration camps, was concerned that the perpetrators be judged for their actions. But he added: ‘no force on earth can stop them (the Nazis)…’Announcements lately made that the perpetrators would be punished after the war have of course no effect. Also there is no adequate punishment for those crimes.
