Reuters Fact Check

Fact check: Photograph shows Nazi bookkeeper, not George Soros

Social media users are sharing a photo of a young man wearing the Schutzstaffel (SS) official uniform and incorrectly claiming it is billionaire philanthropist George Soros. The post implies Soros was in the SS and in the Socialist German Workers (Nazi) party. This is false.
wiki says:
(born Schwartz György; August 12, 1930) is a Hungarian-American billionaire investor and philanthropist. As of May 2020, he had a net worth of $8.3 billion, having donated more than $32 billion to the Open Society Foundation
With the 1945 fall of nazi germany he would have been 15 yrs of age plus or minus.

If serious please give a source.

The only thing I could find: May 30, 2018 at 3:50 p.m. CDT
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...conspiracy-theory-that-roseanne-barr-spreads/

Of all the conspiracy theories spun around the 87-year-old Jewish billionaire George Soros — that..................— the most demonstrably insane may be the claim that he was a Nazi.

That is: That the 14-year-old boy who had to hide from his own government during the German occupation of Hungary was a war criminal who sent his own people to gas chambers.
This particular strain of anti-Soros paranoia has festered for years on far-right message boards, but it suddenly metastasized on Tuesday when it appeared in Roseanne Barr’s Twitter rant, then spread ........

Checking further it seems that Roseanne apologized https://www.clevelandjewishnews.com...cle_98637260-ebf2-538e-91fd-af82db821fc4.html

Rosanne Barr apologizes to George Soros for calling him a Nazi collaborator
Roseanne Barr apologized to Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros for calling the Jewish philanthropist a Nazi collaborator.

Late last month, Barr had tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was married to a Soros nephew, which Clinton refuted in a tweet while praising Soros’ Open Society Foundations which provides grants to civil society groups around the world, with a stated aim of advancing justice, education, public health and independent media. Barr then responded, in a tweet that has since been deleted: “Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you! Please forgive me! By the way, George Soros is a Nazi who turned in his fellow Jews to be murdered in German concentration camps and stole their wealth — were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?”

Finally some facts. I did not watch the youtube.

This is what Soros seems to be guilty of. As a fourteen year old he was attached to someone that did the confiscations. His rationalizing of it is disturbing. It makes for quite a rapacious Business man. NO ADMITTED SENSE OF GUILT is his problem, but yet he had given away billions toward what he thinks are worthy causes. I would say what he witnessed has twisted his soul, and self rightious spending of his amassed fortune is not likely to fix it.
Soros: ``No Sense of Guilt'' for Confiscating Property from
Jews in Nazi-occupied Budapest. ``But there was no sense that
I shouldn't be there, because that was--well, actually, in a
funny way, it's just like in markets--that if I weren't
there--of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would
. . . be taking it away anyhow . . . whether I was there or
not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken
away. So the--I had no role in taking away that property. So

I had no sense of guilt.'' (``George Soros,'' 60 Minutes
interview transcript, December 20, 1998)

Your standards are higher than mine, that bastard should have been dead a long time ago. Given enough time folks will rationalize heinous crimes against humanity.

WE are talking about fact checking and finally we got to the bottom of it of what happened. What to decide once the facts are in is another issue.
If he was to be brought on charges in court, what would the charges be. I think the charges would be that of an accessory. If he did any task that furthered NAZI crimes would be the basis for conviction assuming a 14 year gets tried as an adult that is done under USA law all of the time.
Edit
Today we have child soldiers that commit atrocities in Africa. What to do with them is not an easy answer.

simple, shoot them, they are evil, too far gone to fix
My understanding is that they often put into special camps. I am not aware of war crime trials or mass executions of such boys.

https://theirworld.org/explainers/child-soldiers#section-4

How can child soldiers be helped?

Many child soldiers end up desensitised to violence, which can psychologically damage them. Many are traumatised by what they have been forced to do or have witnessed. Children need to undergo reintegration programmes to help them return to civilian life.
Girls face the additional difficulty of social stigma attached to the belief they have been engaged in sexual activity.
Most child soldiers have missed out on school and need additional education in order to feed themselves and make a more stable life for themselves.
There are various organisations such as War Child and Child Soldiers International who are dedicated to tackling the problem through campaigning and raising awareness, as well as rescuing and rehabilitating child soldiers.

Some people will not accept "truth" even it smacked them in the face! 80 to 90% of Germans supported Hitler and he was able to destroy their country. Soros can be researched and found to be a devastatingly evil person with a horrible , traceable history and yet there are some people who will "Po-Po" the facts.I personally think the America we knew is finished. We weren't destroyed from the outside, but taken apart (in process) from within. and most people don't even see it coming! I went to war, did my duty, fought the good fight, and am at "the end". I'm glad! I don't want to see it!

Many germans, but of course not all did approve. He was liked because killed the communists, the socialists, racial minorities (Gypsies and Jews), liberals, social democrats, and took back land that was taken from germany after WWI. There were and still some americans that approve of what Hitler did.
He also passed gun control laws and Senator Dodd looked at and may have used when the 1968 gun control act was written.

In Europe and other countries national health care is not exclusively pushed for by the left. The thinking is different. The trouble with american medicine, both private and public healthcare is the costs are way higher than in other places. Many of our health problems would be helped if people ate better and did not use drugs.

There are a lot of problems with our health care system.

the number one thing we need is Transparency!

Call around to hospitals and ask what a knee replacement will cost. Not one will give you a good answer, if any answer at all.

Technology helps but it costs a lot.
