Watch Elusive Justice: The Search for Nazi War Criminals
- 1 hr 56 min
In 1945, the Nazi party and the SS were declared criminal organizations by the International Military Tribunal. The Allied forces' goal following WWII was ambitious: to punish every perpetrator of Nazi war crimes and atrocities against humanity. However, their efforts resulted in only a few thousand prosecutions. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Nazis and their collaborators fled, assumed false identities--or even served the Allies as scientists after the war. A handful of people in an unofficial capacity took it upon themselves to identify and locate former Nazis. This documentary presents the six-decade story of the efforts of these Nazi hunters.
