Simon Wiesenthal Center, Operation Last Chance: One Man’s Quest to Bring Nazi Criminals to Justice by Efraim Zuroff
In 2002 the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Israel office together with Targum Shlishi launched Operation Last Chance, a campaign to bring remaining Nazi war criminals to justice. The initiative provides financial awards to informants who submit evidence or information leading to the conviction and punishment of a Nazi war criminal. A book describing the initiative and the progress achieved,OPERATION LAST CHANCE: One Man’s Quest to Bring Nazi Criminals to Justice by Efraim Zuroff was published in late 2009 by Palgrave MacMillan. The book describes the launching of Operation Last Chance in nine countries and the initiative’s impact on the issue of the prosecution of local Nazi war criminals in those countries and elsewhere in the world. So far the initiative has resulted in the names of 547 previously unknown suspects, 101 of whom were passed on to local prosecutors. This information led to dozens of murder investigations, three arrest warrants, and two pending extradition requests.
