Simon Wiesenthal

Postby Swing This! » Tue Sep 20, 2005 2:07 pm

Simon Wiesenthal survived the Nazi death camps, but was haunted for the rest of his life by the need to track down those responsible for them.

His biggest success was bringing Franz Stangl to justice in West Germany in 1967. Stangl was commandant at Treblinka where 40,000 died.

In 1986, he succeeded in having Gypsy representatives included on the Holocaust Memorial Council in Washington DC.
