polly's deportation from a.b.c. news. to living quietly in new york for decades this was the moment history caught up with. us all thirty's arresting him for deportation to germany expelling the ninety five year old despite his plea of frailty has been a priority for the trumpet ministration born in what was then poland poly arrived in america in one nine hundred forty nine concealing his nazi service from immigration officials eight years later his application for citizenship was granted . but in the one nine hundred ninety s. investigators caught up with him he admitted to them having trained at a nazi s.s. camp in trav nikky the site of one of the holocaust worst massacres claiming the lives of some six thousand jewish citizens. a judge then revoked pollies american citizenship in two thousand and three a year later the us authorities ordered his deportation. until now although germany
7:03 pm
had refused to accept him on the grounds that he isn't a german and also because german investigators say the evidence against him using conclusive. but the u.s. ambassador lobbied strongly behind the scenes saying berlin had a moral obligation to admit a man suspected of committing crimes in germany's name he's ninety five he's probably going to die some points. he's a little bit sickly and so we wanted to make sure that he didn't die in peace and comfort in the united states but that he was brought back somewhere to to face justice on diplomatic rather than legal grounds the german government has now accepted that argument. i've been talking to talk more about this so joining me in the studio is the daily reporter. who has covered this story extensively so good to see you i mean because was interesting at the beginning of this year back in february you went to new york and washington to investigate this case so what did
7:04 pm
you find as right i went with a colleague to investigate this case this was right after trump announced the trump administration rather announced that they would make as a priority deporting uk of polly we attempted to get in touch with him but what we found was the home of a recluse i mean windows that hadn't been painted it was really seen that he hadn't come out and while neighbors saw him infrequently and they knew him as just an old man but we spoke with a rabbi at a local school there who told us a different story he said that he had been protesting with students out in front of jack and polly's house for almost fifteen years annually he told us why should an old man be forgiven if he was part of a mechanism that killed some of my grandparents a very poignant point there indeed what will happen to polly next now that he is in germany well it's unclear first we know that he's been sent to
7:05 pm
a nursing home and the area minster but he's not a german citizen so the only reason he's actually in germany right now is because of a diplomatic deal that has been made with the u.s. germany has no legal obligation to prosecute him so it's unclear what they're going to how they're going to proceed with this case is their willingness to prosecute i mean what's germany stance on this case germany stance has changed partially because of the efforts of the new diplomat the the new. and so i hear us about how the new u.s. ambassador has made this a priority he's been talking to a lot of german officials about this germany's stance is that they there's not enough evidence to be brought against active poly. like it was said in the report he was at a camp that killed almost everybody he was there all the jews who had been brought to this camp but there's evidence to show that it was done after he left and the u.s. government says that that's enough to prosecute him but the german government says
7:06 pm
that this might not be enough legally according to german german law are it or not you when during your time in the u.s. you spoke to the u.s. justice department what evidence that they have concretely against polya yes we spoke to a man who has been called the nazi hunter because he made it his career over the past twenty years or so to find nazis in the u.s. and have them deported he was surprised that this case took so long but he believes like other u.s. officials that because he helped the apparatus that eventually led to the deaths of the people that travel nicky and he's responsible for the murder i mean this is thank you so much for your continued coverage of this case. afghan security forces how far off a major militant assault in the heart of the capital kabul reports say all the attackers were killed in the heavy fighting that followed rocket attacks and it came as president atia funny was delivering his holiday message on the first day of

a result of the mortar attacks only two police officers were slightly wounded and all the terrorists were killed in a clearing operation launched by afghan security forces in the area with the timing of the assault a significant it comes two days after the president offered the taliban a conditional three month cease fire coinciding with celebrations afghan police initially held the group responsible before the so-called islamic state made its claims more plausible it's all work of those in the past we used to celebrate eat with joy and happiness but now suicide attacks people on the holiday is filled with tension. when we leave our homes we're not sure if i'll make it back alive i just praise almighty god to safeguard all the muslim people in afghanistan. the attacks mark yet another blow to gandhi's efforts to bring militants to the negotiating table and hold peace talks to end the country seventeen year war.
