he was prisoned 4 years in a concentration camp.
His whole family was murdered only his
wife survived.

He had found many warcriminals whole over
the world.
The biggest catch "Adolf Eichmann".

I have much respect for Simon Wiesenthal.

"Wiesenthal is often asked to explain his motives for becoming a Nazi hunter. According to Clyde Farnsworth in the New York Times Magazine (February 2, 1964), Wiesenthal once spent the Sabbath at the home of a former Mauthausen inmate, now a well-to-do jewelry manufacturer. After dinner his host said, "Simon, if you had gone back to building houses, you'd be a millionaire. Why didn't you?" "You're a religious man," replied Wiesenthal. "You believe in God and life after death. I also believe. When we come to the other world and meet the millions of Jews who died in the camps and they ask us, 'What have you done?', there will be many answers. You will say, 'I became a jeweler', Another will say, I have smuggled coffee and American cigarettes', Another will say, 'I built houses', But I will say, 'I didn't forget you'."

Werre_Fsck;

If I'm reading your post correctly you're meaning the Wiesenthal Center?

If so you need to go away.

Is there a mod in the house?

Amazing guy..but so many Nazis escaped..why? And so many are receiving war pensions in Germany. I'm not talking about soldiers who fought for their country.

There's a guy who ordered the execution of over 60 British soldiers near Dunkirk in May 1940 but who is alive and well in Germany and receiving a pension far bigger than his WW2 equivalent in Britain. (The pensions for German soldiers are far higher than British soldiers...)

Just a thought...

yup, a true hero. He made sure that alot of those maggots who would have gotten away and been harbored by various govts were nabbed in the middle of the night by Isreali Mossad agents (cool guys and gals in my book) and wound up in a glass cage in a Tel Aviv courtroom. I admire anyone who promotes true justice and goes after REAL criminals instead of the phony courts in this country who go after political capital.

It must have been very satisfying. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

He's gone to the eternal Nazi-hunting grounds...

I hope he keeps tracking down the Nazis who cheated their way into Heaven and gets them relocated downwards!

If there is an after life and rewards are to be had, I can think of no other person more deserving of those rewards. Rest in peace

Look g5r-88, if you want to post a differing opinion, that's all well and good. But to call a man who made his life calling bringing Nazi butchers to justice a profiteer.............PLUHLEEZE! have a little more respect.


Mods?

May he rest in peace.

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/biography/Wiesenthal.html

Out of his and his wife's families, 89 members perished during the Holocaust.

His step-brother and step-father were both victims of the Soviet occupation of Lvov Oblast.

He will be most remembered, I think, for the capture and trial of notorious war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

Here is a man that deveoted himself to a cause body and soul.

His life and ideals deserve much respect more respect than I can put into words. It is a sad thing to hear of his passing.

As for g5r_88, linking to a Holocaust deniers site in this thread is in the absolute poorest of taste. You should be ashamed.

You dare call Simon Wiesenthal a "disinformant" in a thread dedicated to his memory and yet link to a website that sells books written by David Irving, a proven liar, distorter of historical evidence and a Holocaust Denier?

Read about David Irving here: http://www.hdot.org/ieindex.html

I'm referring to g5r-88 (look up what "88" means in some far right circles) the post by another guy Werre_Fsck was obviously deleted so another far right (oh they call themselves "alternative hostorians") dude comes up to spread filth, often in just a subtle way.

I'm out of this thread, God bless Simon Wisenthal. If I knew a jewish prayer I'd write one now.
