Austria hunts Nazis


Austria is offering rewards for the capture of two Nazis at large and believed to be alive.

The former Nazi-controlled state is offering approximately $69,000 for information leading to the arrest and capture of Aribert Heim, an SS doctor who killed concentration camp inmates with heart injections, and Alois Brunner, a right-hand man to Adolf Eichmann who organized deportations of Jews to death camps.


“Austria is often blamed for having done too little,” Austrian Justice Minister Maria Berger told Reuters. “I don’t want to judge previous governments; I want to do now what we still can do.”
