Dr. Hans-Joachim Sewering is accused of participating in the transfer of 900 German Catholic children from Schönbrunn Sanitarium to Eglfing-Haar “Healing Center”, where they died.
Four nuns made this allegation in January 1993. They were eyewitnesses to these crimes and broke their vow of silence 50 years after the fact at the suggestion of the Archbishop of Munich.
Despite these facts the German State of Bavaria is harboring and protecting Dr. Hans-Joachim Sewering for 50 years. Dr. Sewering to this day still practices medicine in Dachau and has never been prosecuted for the alledged crimes he committed. (For more about the Case Click Here). Now the Nazi doctor is being honored by Bavaria for service to the community. I wonder if that “service” includes sending 900 deformed children to their deaths:
German doctor ‘who sent 900 children to Nazi camp’ honoured

A German doctor who allegedly sent 900 children to a Nazi death camp has been given a top medical award. ...Dr Hans-Joachim Sewering, 92, a former SS member, was honoured for “services to the nation’s health system”. The doctor has always denied sending children to Eglfing-Haar, a facility south of Munich where it’s alleged physically and mentally handicapped children were killed. Despite the allegations, Dr Sewering enjoyed a brilliant career and is a former head of Germany’s doctors’ association. The Nazis are known to have coerced doctors into reporting disabled patients during “Action T-4”. Many alleged Nazi war criminals have either died or disappeared with out a trace, but Dr Sewering still lives openly in Dachau, north of Munich, near the site of the concentration camp of the same name. While established Nazi hunters at the Simon Wiesenthal centre have launched ‘Operation Last Chance’ in an attempt to track down any remaining fugitives before they die, Dr Sewering has been the target of a long, lone campaign led from the US by a fellow doctor. Dr Michael Franzblau has spent tens of thousands of pounds of his own money to bankroll an effort to see Sewering prosecuted. “I would like the German medical profession to recognize that they have a stain on their honour by his continued presence,” he has said in speeches in the US. Dr Franzblau, who claims he is motivated by a moral imperative as “a physician, an American and a Jew” even took out a full page advertisement in the New York Times costing more than £30,000 asking: “Why is the German state of Bavaria harbouring an accused war criminal?”
