Nazi Fugitive Alois Brunner May Be Alive in Syria

Nazi hunters, including Israel, have been looking for Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner for years. The CIA may have employed him. At the age of 100, he still may alive and hiding in Syria.
Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner, remains the Number One most wanted Nazi war criminal - if he still is alive.

Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner, remains the Number One most wanted Nazi war criminal - if he still is alive.

Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner, former senior aide to Adolf Eichmann, may still be alive and hiding in Syria, according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which has  launched a poster campaign in Germany to track him down.

“Late, but not too late,” the posters read.

He is the Number One of the 10 most wanted Nazi war criminal thought to be alive, among approximately 60 who have not been caught.

The Wiesenthal Centre admitted that there is only a “slim” chance that Brunner still is alive but added that he is suspected to be living in Damascus, possibly in a hotel.

He was second in command to Eichmann, the only person who Israel ever executed.

Brunner fled to Egypt after World War II and later moved to Damascus on suspicion of being a drug dealer. He was freed after he revealed having been a Nazi ini the war, when he deported more than 140,000 Jews to Nazi death camps.

The Jewish Virtual Library suggests that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) once employed  Brunner before moving to Syria.

French authorities convicted him to death in absentia in 1954.

The regime of Hafez Assad, father of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad, welcomed him and he returned the favor by bringing missile scientists form Germany and helping to set up Assad’s intelligence system.

He not only did not express regrets for his Nazi atrocities, but he also bragged about them. In a telephone interview with the Austrian news magazine Bunte, he said, “All of them deserved to die because they were the devil’s agents and human garbage. In a another interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, he stated, “ I have no regrets and would do it again.”

Israel tried to kill him with letter bombs, which succeeded only in burning for fingers.

Twice, there were rumors that he dies in the 1990s, but there has been no proof.

“The likelihood that he is already deceased increases with each passing year,” the Wiesenthal Center said.

    Leave the old war hero alone!

  2. Dan Silagi says:

    He'd be 101 if he were still alive. This is another classic example of the Simon Wiesenthal Center trolling for donations, just as it did with Adelbert Heim, another Nazi of whom the Wiesenthal Center said they were "on the verge of capturing" a couple years ago. Problem was, Heim had died 20 years before, and there was documented proof of his death.

    It's time the Wiesenthal Center stopped going after nonogenarians and centenarians and concentrate on finding Arab and Iranian war criminals, such as the people who blew up that Jewish center in Buenos Aires.

  4. The Guardian says:

    Dan, even if turned out that you are correct and these Nazi’s are dead, can you see no value of the SWC pursuing these Jew-killers until their deaths are confirmed? It’s a powerful message: “You will be hunted till you are dead.”

  5. The Guardian says:

    Herr Bennett, you’re next.

  6. I have just read a book by the famous German historian Dr. Guido Knopp on Alois Brunner and his possibly engagement with CIA, colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser, and Hafez al-Assad of Syria.
    Brunner is indeed a criminal worth his weight in gold. But I think the race is over. 101 years of age with the shrinking possibility each year passing that earthly justice will catch him. – As the above commenter states concentrate on present day fascists. Pick them out one by one in Cairo, Damascus, Tehran and the like. Take the terrorists out of the game, those perverts who has wet dreams about a second Shoah.

  7. Yechiel Baum says:

    Syria should release him to the USA in prior talks of peace with the USA> just like with the Palestinian stupidity.

  8. I don't agree with you. Recently Lazlo Czatary was charged in Budapest even though he is in his late 90's.

    I doubt the government will actually follow through given the pro-Nazi Hungarian sentiment. But as he was involved in my grandmother's murder, I would not want any effort to punish him to stop.

    I am sure that people in a similar situation feel the same way, along with many others. There is no reason to limit the worst killers until there is no doubt they are dead.

  9. Yechiel Baum says:

    Russia being an ally to Assad, they seem to have double standards since Russia was attacked by Germany with Brenner's aid and it seems Russia has no iinterest to bring him to justise for his murder of millions of Russians too.Do the Russian survivors know their leaders allow this to go unpunished. Russia is a haven for nazi collaboratrs, Arab terrorists and no wonder why the people of Russia want to leave Putin's neighborhood of criminals.
