Nazi doctor is alive in Chile

#1
From the BBC Clicky

Nazi-hunters say they have strong evidence that the most wanted member of Hitler's regime - known as Dr Death - is hiding in southern Chile.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre believes Aribert Heim is in Patagonia, where his daughter is known to live.

The centre has sent representatives to the region to pursue the search.

Heim is said to have documented the victims he tortured and killed at Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria during World War II.

He is accused of killing Jews using exceptionally cruel methods. According to Holocaust survivors, he performed operations and amputations without anaesthetic to see how much pain his victims could endure.

Injecting victims straight into the heart with petrol, water or poison were said to have been his favoured method at Mauthausen.

"In the last few days we've received information from two different sources, both relating to Chile, which we think have very good potential," said Efraim Zuroff, director of the Israel office of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre.

The group has put up a 315,000 euros ($495,000; £250,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of Heim.

"His crimes are fully documented by himself, because he kept a log of the operations that he carried out," Mr Zuroff said.

"He tortured many inmates before he killed them at Mauthausen, and he used body parts of the people he killed as decorations."

After the war, Heim was detained by US forces but was not charged.

He practised medicine in the German town of Baden-Baden until 1962, when he fled the country after being tipped off that the authorities were about to prosecute him.

If he is still alive, Heim will be 94 years old
How many Nazi's are there left unaccounted for? Can't be many still alive after all this time.

I met one (i believe), holed away in Romblon Province in the Philippines back in 1994. Had a miserable looking life and was close to deaths door, so i left him to it.

Another curious one was a German called Adolfo, born in 1946, living on Caribbean coast of Colombia, owning some prime real estate in the Tyrona National Park. He was a very pleasant guy, but the 30something German descendant owning the plot of land next to Adolfo's was an absolute ****, with close ties to the paramilitaries living there/in the sierra nevada.
You should have said something. Even though he was at deaths door he should have been brought to justice, Just because they are old and decrepid doesn't excuse their past behaviour.

Exactly how many "Dr Death's" did the Nazis have?

This 'Adolfo', he didn't have a maniacal stare and a neat little tache did he?

1. If he was living a life of luxury i'd of considered it.

2. When on our side we let people like Brigadier Reginald Dyer, responsible for the Amritstar Massacre and Captain Ernest Medina, who ordered the murders in My Lai, off their horrendous crimes against humanity, i struggle to believe in 'our' justice system.
1. He was living a life of luxury in comparison to those whose families he destroyed.

2. Amristar (or even My Lai) is hardly a comparable event to what the NAZIs did. The events in My Lai were nothing to do with us, that was a US thing of which there are many examples. (thats not to say that those events weren't crimes)

If someone had told you that they had found a known IRA terrorist, but thought he is old, lets just leave it at that, would you be happy? I know I wouldn't be.

Put your safari suit away - there were enough Israelis, fresh from military service, there to take him down. So maybe Adolfo's dad was a V2 rocket specialist, or maybe had a lot of 'human dissection' knowledge to pass on.....
You utter, utter bastard. I've just noticed you ******* necroposted this on a 2008 thread. I'll have you know that I've downed a very nice bottle of Bordeaux instead of eating lunch other wise I wouldn't have posted on a resurrected thread. Right my next pressing question is Malt or Cognac, and I require assistance!

1. Nope - it looked like a living hell.
I am sure that the relatives of those that were rotting in their graves that he had a part in killing are thankful for that. He was free to go about his business I assume. He didn't have prison guards whipping him for no reason or anything like the conditions that the people in the NAZI concentration camps suffered?

2. The premeditated murder of civilians by an army in India or Vietnam is not comparable to the premeditated murder of civilians by an army in Germany ? I disagree.
Well, lets see. The premeditated elimination of those of a religious faith, which ended up to be about 3 million people killed is very different to an officers knee jerk panic reaction which resulted in the deaths of about 1000 people. It was not sanctioned by the British and in fact changed the way the Army worked in India (and likely other places). He wasn't exactly let off either, although his "punishment" wasn't very fitting at all and very little.

My Lai, as I said, that is the yanks crime and knowing them, they probably passed out medals for it. Its not really relevant to this on a Brit perspective.

3. If in the year 2065 we found an former IRA combatant, quietly living his life and the Good Friday agreement still standing i'd be happy to leave it at that. Maybe talk to the old **** to try to learn something from him so we can try to avoid the same mistakes.
Sorry, but I would not. I would not call those of the IRA combatants either, more like terrorist scum. I would like to see all IRA terrorists receive the death penalty no matter what age they are.

Now that's a good question, because it is sufficiently vague as to not exclude doctors of philosophy - I kill therefore I am, doctors of politics - One death is murder 100k deaths is policy, doctors of music - music to die for, doctors of.....well you get the point.

A quick Wiki.Nazi_party search, available on subscription at www.N_Socialist.co.ge/wiki actually shows that there was active interest and competition to be nominated and acclaimed "Nazi Death Bringer to Untermencsh of the month" - although as the war lingered on and cuts and shortages became more accute, the monthly competition became quarterly then bi-annual, annual and ultimately was only awarded once per decade.

The same wiki site also suggests that the most extreme and highly sought after accolade was not "Dr Death" but "Professor Confessor", which was a Himmler-sponsored title for interrogators. Fairly poor quality acetate footage show one such investiture ceremony at this link.

So - to answer the original question, it seems that (using the data provided set against the years of the Party's existence) there were 16868745 awards of the Dr. Death title and 13 of the "Professor Confessor" title.

Given that "only" 3 death camp death doctors have been found, simple subtraction shows that there are still 8 evading justice/retribution/retaliation. They probably now live in Bexhill-on-sea.

Hope this goes some way to answer your question.

More likely retired in Colorado on a NASA or USAMRICD (United States Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense) pension.
closer to the truth than a FOI submission would reveal !

One should never mix grape with grain so it might be better to forgo the malt. I would suggest the 1955 Harveys Petite Champagne Cognac. That will not spoil your palate for dinner.
