Reward Offered For Wwii Nazi’s Capture

Compiled From Wire Services

German prosecutors are offering a $338,000 reward for help in arresting the last top Nazi still on the loose, a magazine reported Saturday.

Alois Brunner, 83, who allegedly helped direct the deportation and murder of 128,500 Jews during World War II, was recently reported to have been in several countries in South America and Asia, Der Spiegel reported.

Arrest warrants have been issued in Austria, Germany and France, and Interpol is helping to search for him, said the Hamburg-based magazine.

Brunner fled Germany for Syria in 1954. Some reports have speculated that Syria convinced Brunner to leave the country, or that he may already be dead.
