What is an alleged perpetrator?
- An alleged perpetrator is only under suspicion until proven that they are a perpetrator. The word 'alleged' is a legal term used when they have no evidence to prove the individual they suspect is otherwise proven by the law there is evidence they are a perpetrator. Example: If someone called you a liar and gossiped enough to tarnish your reputation then you could try and sue them, but, if they say that you are an alleged liar there is no clear cut evidence you are.

Perpetrators were those who did the killing. The legal deffinition is a bit larger, including those who ordered the actions also. The moral deffinition larger still, it includ…es those who enabled others to kill. One example is; you have the person who poured the gas into the gas chambers, also the people who ordered him to, from his direct superior, to the camp commander, to the leader of the SS (Himmler), to the leader of the state (Hitler), also those who enabled him to do this, from the guards who put the prisoners into the chambers, to the doctors who obeserved the process. In addition to this there were many people without whom the actual act of murder could not have happened: There was the local law enforcment who were responsible for arresting and deporting the Jews. There were the civillians who drove the trains and other transports. There were the contractors who designed and built the gas chambers. There were the people who profited from the surrendered Jewish property and businesses. If any of these groups had refused to do their part, then the story would have been different. The perpetrators were those who helped make it happen. People of this period are generally divided into three categories. Victims, perpetrators and bystanders. Some like to add a fourth category of rescuers, they were so few compared to the others that they are generally not counted as a category.
