I dunno about that man, I have a friend who is just a couple of years older than me (I am in my mid-20's) whose dad has the number tattoo. And he's not even close to the first one I've seen - there are a lot of people out there with Nazi numbers on their arms. No money could ever repay the damage done to these people and their families.

The last cases of Nazi number branding were probably in 1945. Since most children under 10 or so were immediately gassed and cremated, and were not branded with a number since the Nazis considered a waste of resources, most of the youngest people with number brands were most likely born around 1935-6. This would make most of them over age 65 today.
