Should the Nazi soldiers live?

By: Ben

While in class discussing the book Night with a Socratic seminar, my fellow classmates talked about having the Jewish babies thrown up and the shot in the Holocaust  I connected the killing of the babies to a shooting on the news. The news said that one person shot 8 children from the age of 2 to 14. While I was in the discussion my classmates wondered how could the soldiers live with themselves after killing babies. I again connected the question with what the news said, the killer ended up killer committed suicide. So the connection I made was contemplating the consequence for killing babies.

Do you think the Nazi soldiers could live with themselves? Do you think they should have been sentenced to death? Comment below.
