The New York Times and ZDF teamed up to find out the fate of the man who was the most wanted escaped Nazi war criminal. Sadly, he successfully eluded justice and died a free man in Egypt. The article does a good job in tracing his steps since he fled Germany and describing his life as a fugitive for three decades. I’d like to think there’s a special spot in hell reserved for people like him, and that his atrocities catch up to him in the end.

On a related note, if you want an amazing story – albeit fictitious – about hunting Nazi fugitives, I highly recommend Daniel Silva’s “A Death in Vienna.”
