Wanted posters appeal for arrests of last living Nazi war criminals in Germany

National Post | News

BERLIN — The Simon Wiesenthal Center launched a poster campaign in several German cities Tuesday appealing for help in tracking down the last surviving Nazi war criminals not yet brought to justice, and promising compensation to those who provide useful information.

About 2,000 posters depicting the entrance gate of the Nazi death camp Auschwitz were put up in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne asking the public to come forward with information that may lead to the arrest of Nazis some seven decades after the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.

“Unfortunately, very few people who committed the crimes had to pay for them,” Efraim Zuroff, the U.S.-based Jewish centre’s top Nazi hunter, told reporters in Berlin. “The passage of time in no way diminishes the crimes.”
