Hunting Nazi Criminals; Operation: Last Chance – Interview with Efraim Zuroff

In 2002, the Simon Wiesenthal Center-Israel and the Targum Shlishi Foundation of Miami launched Operation: Last Chance to help facilitate the prosecution of Nazi war criminals, primarily in post-Communist Europe. So far it has been initiated in nine countries and has yielded the names of some 380 suspects; 79 of which have been submitted to local prosecutors. The educational dimensions of Operation: Last Chance were designed to sensitize people to the history of the Holocaust and help them focus on the key historical issues relating to the implications of local complicity in Holocaust crimes.
