Nazi Concentration Camp Guard Deported to Austria

Josias Kumpf, a former Nazi Concentration Camp Guard, has been deported to Austria by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Kumpf was a prison guard at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in Germany and Trawniki Labor Camp in Poland.

Kumpf also admits to being involved in Operation Harvest Festival, a Nazi operation that resulted in the death of about 42,000 Jews. He was at Trawniki during the operation and participated in the mass shooting that resulted in the death of over 8,000 Jewish men, women and children.

Kumpf’s deportment is an attempt to bring justice to the victim’s of Nazi inhumanity. It is also part of the United States’ efforts to make sure that our country does not become a safe haven for anyone that has committed crimes against humanity. Since 1979, the Office of Special Investigations has won cases against 107 people who participated in Nazi crimes and prevented 180 more from entering the United States.
