I just saw this for the first time since it original airing some years ago.Much better now as they don't spend 20 minutes trying to prove it was Hocker on the ramp.I'm glad they finally picked up on the fact that uniform was that of a NCO and not an officer, but they implied that perhaps he wore an NCO uniform because cameras were around that day.That is an absurd theory.The camp guards were quite proud of what they were doing and obviously felt no shame in being photographed.No SS officer would wear an NCO uniform, and even if Hocker tried to, do you think the camp Komandant wouldn't have a few words with him?I'm glad NATGEO had the backbone to edit their initial goof but they are still clinging to finding some shred of evidence he was at the ramp.They touched what really mattered only in the last minute the show.As adjutant of the camp there is no doubt he knew full well what was going on.He couldn't function as one if he didn't.In the commander's absence, no matter how brief, he was left in charge.Obviously Hocker was lying in Nurnberg and for the rest of his life.

No monsters here..just people with different beliefs. Hitler passed a law that said Jews were not human.

america passed a law that says a child in the womb is not human. whats the difference?
