Most-Wanted Nazi Killer Found in Hungary

The world’s most wanted Nazi war criminal, László Csatary, charged with involvement in the murders of over 15,000 Jews, was located, alive and well in Hungary, following a 15 year search.

“Nazi hunter” Dr. Ephraim Zuroff, the head of the Wiesenthal Institute in Jerusalem, located Csatary after receiving information from a local man, as part of “Operation Last Chance,” meant to locate the last remaining Nazi war criminals alive.

“We negotiated with the source about the reward he would receive – and then he gave us the information,” Zuroff told Haaretz on Sunday morning.

Zuroff passed along the information on Csatary’s location to the local authorities in Hungary. “I expect them to question him, and take his passport to prevent him from running away,” said Zuroff.
