    he was prisoned 4 years in a concentration camp.
    His whole family was murdered only his
    wife survived.

    He had found many warcriminals whole over
    the world.
    The biggest catch "Adolf Eichmann".

    I have much respect for Simon Wiesenthal.

    "Wiesenthal is often asked to explain his motives for becoming a Nazi hunter. According to Clyde Farnsworth in the New York Times Magazine (February 2, 1964), Wiesenthal once spent the Sabbath at the home of a former Mauthausen inmate, now a well-to-do jewelry manufacturer. After dinner his host said, "Simon, if you had gone back to building houses, you'd be a millionaire. Why didn't you?" "You're a religious man," replied Wiesenthal. "You believe in God and life after death. I also believe. When we come to the other world and meet the millions of Jews who died in the camps and they ask us, 'What have you done?', there will be many answers. You will say, 'I became a jeweler', Another will say, I have smuggled coffee and American cigarettes', Another will say, 'I built houses', But I will say, 'I didn't forget you'."

    Werre_Fsck;

    If I'm reading your post correctly you're meaning the Wiesenthal Center?

    If so you need to go away.

    Is there a mod in the house?

    Amazing guy..but so many Nazis escaped..why? And so many are receiving war pensions in Germany. I'm not talking about soldiers who fought for their country.

    There's a guy who ordered the execution of over 60 British soldiers near Dunkirk in May 1940 but who is alive and well in Germany and receiving a pension far bigger than his WW2 equivalent in Britain. (The pensions for German soldiers are far higher than British soldiers...)

    Just a thought...

    yup, a true hero. He made sure that alot of those maggots who would have gotten away and been harbored by various govts were nabbed in the middle of the night by Isreali Mossad agents (cool guys and gals in my book) and wound up in a glass cage in a Tel Aviv courtroom. I admire anyone who promotes true justice and goes after REAL criminals instead of the phony courts in this country who go after political capital.

    It must have been very satisfying.

    He's gone to the eternal Nazi-hunting grounds...

    I hope he keeps tracking down the Nazis who cheated their way into Heaven and gets them relocated downwards!
