BERLIN, November 26. /ITAR-TASS/. International human rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center has found trace of four suspected German war criminals. Efraim Zuroff, director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center office in Jerusalem, announced the discovery on Monday in Munich, saying that evidence has already been submitted with the authorities.
One of the suspects was a Nazi warden at the Auschwitz concentration camp during the “Third Reich.” Information pertaining to the aforementioned woman and another case are currently at the Central Office of the State Justice Administrations for the Investigation of National Socialist Crimes in Ludwigsburg, Zuroff said. Two other cases were submitted to the prosecution of Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia.
According to Zuroff, a billboard campaign launched by the State Justice Administrations for the Investigation of National Socialist Crimes was instrumental to finding the Nazi war criminals. The campaign caused feedback from the locals, pointing to possible whereabouts of the suspects.
According to its mission statement, The Simon Wiesenthal Center is “a global Jewish human rights organization that confronts anti-Semitism, hate and terrorism, promotes human rights and dignity, stands with Israel, defends the safety of Jews worldwide, and teaches the lessons of the Holocaust for future generations.”
