Precisely! It was called wartime and we were in a death struggle against a level of evil the world had seen very few times before.
I don't have any guilt unless we misallocated resources used for the camps that could have been used more effectively in the war effort.
My late father on an engineering trip to West Germany had hosts who served in LAH or maybe Totenkopf. After the tours of the day were over they'd all end up at the beer hall . My old man was no slouch but these guys could knock'em back as well as anybody.
Once they got into their cups and got a good buzz on, they would remember, and the only guilt they had over the war was that they LOST!
