Minnesota man exposed as commander of Nazi-led unit dies

MINNEAPOLIS A retired Minnesota carpenter whom The Associated Press exposed as a former commander of a Nazi-led unit accused of war atrocities has died.

Michael Karkoc, whose family maintained that he was never a Nazi or committed any war crimes, lived quietly in Minneapolis for decades until AP's review of U.S. and Ukrainian records in 2013 uncovered his past and prompted investigations in Germany and Poland. Karkoc died Dec. 14, according to cemetery and public records. He was 100.

His son, Andriy Karkoc, hung up on an AP reporter without confirming his father's death. Officials at the Kozlak-Radulovich Funeral Chapel, which was listed on one website as having handled the funeral arrangements, declined to comment.

But records at Hillside Cemetery in Minneapolis show he was quietly buried there Dec. 19, next to his wife, Nadia Karkoc, who died in 2018. And Minnesota Department of Health records show that a Michael Karkoc with the correct birthday died Dec. 14. The family and funeral home did not publish a public obituary.

1. I hope he was nervously looking over his shoulder ever since the 40s.

Emotionally trapped in his own prison, waiting for the authorities, living like the guy in Poe's Tell-Tale Heart.

Now he can spend all of eternity in the real hell. A reunion with the rest of those bastards.

2. I assume the son wasn't proud of his father's past.

3. Instead of a headstone,

 

They should place a urinal.

Just to make up for justice denied!
