Are there any Nazis left from World War 2?

Famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal died last week at the age of 96. A Holocaust survivor, he had dedicated his adult life tracking down Nazi War Criminals, helping to bring over 1,100 to justice.

Question: Do you think there are still WW2 Nazis (not neo-Nazis) living who should have been brought to justice?

21Yes, I believe there are still WW2 Nazi War Criminals out there.
21I wouldn't know
1No, I think all WW2 Nazi War Criminals are dead

Since it was a political thing I'm sure there are still people that were Nazi's during WW2 alive. Whether they would all be considered war criminals I don't know but I bet there are still some war criminals out there.

i would think there could be........... but they must all be fairly old by now.

I would have no reason to believe they are not still out there, in fact, there was one man I met in the states rumored to be a leftover nazi. He just passed away this year. Who know for sure, maybe his leftover wife would know. maybe over tea we can find out. Then we can dig him up and give him a proper war criminal burial, one with no dignity or respect.

Yes, but they'd probably be at least 75 years old. The odds are they'd be too old and senile to aid in their own defense. Furthermore, it would be difficult to justify the expense of initiating a long drug out prosecution of somebody who's apt to drop dead any moment from old age.

Define Nazi, your common soldier, or someone in command & on the staff? Are we discussing the ones that either joined or be killed thmselves? There's too many shades of grey to answer this accurately.

Being that I know a WWII veteran, I'll say yes, one must only be around 80 years old, and do you think these people actually wanted to enact all the cruelties that they did?

Beats me, but I doubt it. It is certainly plausible. If we assume that the youngest possible Nazi was 18 in 1945, they would be 78 today. I think that leaves room for a fair amount of potential Nazis chronologically speaking. However, if Simon Wiesenthal personally helped to capture over 1,100 Nazi war criminals, and we assume that there were at least a few other ones that were captured without his help...I mean gosh! How many legitimate Nazi war criminals could there possibly be?!! And then if you stack this up against the number of war criminals from WWII that weren't Nazis, (don't try to tell me that there weren't any) how far do you go with this sort of thing?

With human lifespan upwards of 80 years, I'm sure there are still WW2 Nazi War Criminals still alive.

There are news reports about Nazi criminals being recognized years after they fled Germany. I see no reason to believe they are all dead.

Of course there are: 2005 - 1945 = 60. It is likely that there were Nazi criminals who now are between 80 and 90. But "Nazi" and "Nazi War Criminal" is not the same! The vast majority of younger people in those days were Nazis because of the brain-washing of the Nazi education system. But only a tiny minority of them would have to be called "Nazi War Crminals". Also, I think that practically all those misled young people of the Nazi times will have changed their views in the meantime. It is silly to hunt people who are almost 90 years old. The problem are the neo-Nazis!

Yes, I believe that there are still some WW2 Nazi was criminals alive. As for being "brought to justice", I don't know how that would play out as they would be quite elderly and near the end of their lives...

Absolutely. A Dutch SS guy was just set free after a German court ruled he was mentally unfit to stand trial.'er_Bikker_hoeft...

Yes, there are probably a few nonagenarian Nazis still knocking around.

It should be World War II. As to the question, I have no idea.

I do think many exist to this day, perhaps remenants of Hitler's youth corps and/or misguided followers that still follow his wayward doctrine of evil. Though, I truly doubt to see an uprising again... 'Cut off the head and the body will surely die'.

If we still have WW2 veterans, why wouldn't there still be Nazis. There were so many of them, its kinda hard to bring every single last one of them to justice.
