What punishments did Nazi soldiers receive after World War 2?
When the war was over some were arrested and did time in prison.
Some got hanged (see Nuremberg trails). Others went off through the
"nazi underground" system and ended up in places like South America
and began new lives...and were never brought to justice. Some
simply got forgotten or overlooked in the post-WW2 chaos. Europe
was in a huge mess for many years after the war.Many followed after
Hitler and commited suicide Some got taken prisoner and ended up in
Russia. Some the allied intelligence services etc grabbed because
they had special knowledge and they ended up spying for the US and
Britain. In war, not all offenders get brought to justice.
