The vice president of Hungary's ultranationalist Jobbik Party filed a complaint with police against Nazi hunter Efraim Zuroff for making "false statements."
In a court ruling that is bringing new attention to Australia’s failure to prosecute alleged Nazi-era war criminals, the government will not surrender to Hungary the man believed to be the country’s last World War II war crimes suspect.
He was often called “the Jewish James Bond” and “the Conscience of the Holocaust” for his activities in the pursuit of Nazis. It was a mission to which the late Simon Wiesenthal dedicated some 58 years of his life, after having been a prisoner in several concentration camps during World War II. The iconic figure lives again in the one-man show “Nazi Hunter — Simon Wiesenthal,” starring and written by Tom Dugan. The production is now running at Theatre 40, a professional theater company located on the campus of Beverly Hills High School.
Famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, who just turned 90, still leaves his modest home in Vienna several times a week to work at his Jewish Documentation Center, which is located in a nondescript, sparsely furnished, three-room office 100 yards from the former Gestapo headquarters.
