  • Germany says it has proof Demjanjuk killed Jews at Sobibor death camp (Nazi Hunters Bag Another One)

    11/13/2008 7:54:02 AM PST · by mnehring · 73 replies · 1,710+ views
    German authorities said Monday they have enough evidence to charge John Demjanjuk with taking part in the deaths of 29,000 Jews in 1943. German officials said they are "convinced that Demjanjuk . . . is by all means guilty of being an accessory to a vicious murder" of Jews at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, where investigators say he worked. Investigators said they delivered a report to prosecutors in Munich to determine if Demjanjuk could stand trial in Germany. It is unclear when a decision to seek extradition will be made. The last time German officials filed war...

    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria's legal system and its insufficient zeal in investigating alleged crimes committed under Hitler's Third Reich make it a "paradise for Nazi war criminals," a top Nazi hunter said on Wednesday. Frustrated at slow progress in finding suspected war criminals in Austria and bringing them to court, Simon Wiesenthal Center director Efraim Zuroff came to Vienna for talks with ministers aimed at accelerating the process. "The law in this country does more to protect Nazis than to bring them to justice," Zuroff told reporters after talks with Austria's ministers for justice and the interior. "There is a...

    In taking note of the life of Simon Wiesenthal, the great Nazi hunter who died yesterday at 96 after surviving the Soviet NKVD, numerous German death camps and a 1982 assassination attempt, we are reminded of Andrew Jackson's famous aphorism: "One man with courage makes a majority." ...[I]t is difficult to remember that when Mr. Wiesenthal began tracking Nazis from a tiny "Documentation Center" in the Austrian city of Linz, his work was hardly popular. Much of Europe wanted to put its collaborationist chapters behind it; some of the most prominent Nazis had fled to distant corners and assumed new...

    Simon Wiesenthal believes his work must continue to remind world of a tarnished past SIMON WIESENTHAL, the last great Nazi hunter, will be knighted by Britain today in a tribute to his role in tracking down more than 1,000 war criminals from the Third Reich. The presentation for the appointment as Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire, by John Macgregor, the British Ambassador to Vienna, is likely to be a poignant one. Mr Wiesenthal, now 95, is ill — so frail that the ceremony will be conducted in his living room — and has withdrawn from the...

    It's an honor," people keep telling the Klarsfelds. An honor to meet them, an honor to host them, an honor to sit down for lunch with them. In town to speak at a lecture sponsored by the Congregation Kol Ami synagogue, the Klarsfelds — Beate, who's 65, and Serge, 68 — are frequently described as "Nazi hunters." But, for the people reverently shaking their hands and thanking them for being here, they are far more. They are truth-tellers, the embodiment of conscience. -snip- "Many young Frenchmen," he says, choosing his words carefully though his English is flawless, "of North African...

    It is the start of a well-deserved rest: Simon Wiesenthal, the world's foremost Nazi hunter, announced his retirement earlier this month. In the April issue of Format, an Austrian magazine, the 94-year-old Mr. Wiesenthal proclaims that "my work is done ... I found the mass murderers I was looking for. I survived them all. Those who I didn't look for are too old and sick today to be pursued legally." Mr. Wiesenthal can look back on his five decades of patient detective work with great pride. By carefully studying wartime records and cultivating informants, he exposed more than 1,000 suspected...
