Nazi criminal doctor Heim in Chile?

This is a video about the nazi Colonia Dignidad cult in Chile.

From the BBC:

Nazi doctor ‘is alive in Chile

Heim is said to have used his victims’ body parts as decorations

Nazi-hunters say they have strong evidence that the most wanted member of Hitler’s regime – known as Dr Death – is hiding in southern Chile.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre believes Aribert Heim is in Patagonia, where his daughter is known to live.

The centre has sent representatives to the region to pursue the search.

Heim is said to have documented the victims he tortured and killed at Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria during World War II.

He is accused of killing Jews using exceptionally cruel methods. According to Holocaust survivors, he performed operations and amputations without anaesthetic to see how much pain his victims could endure.

Injecting victims straight into the heart with petrol, water or poison were said to have been his favoured method at Mauthausen.

“In the last few days we’ve received information from two different sources, both relating to Chile, which we think have very good potential,” said Efraim Zuroff, director of the Israel office of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre.

The group has put up a 315,000 euros ($495,000; £250,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of Heim.

“His crimes are fully documented by himself, because he kept a log of the operations that he carried out,” Mr Zuroff said.

“He tortured many inmates before he killed them at Mauthausen, and he used body parts of the people he killed as decorations.”

After the war, Heim was detained by US forces but was not charged.

He practised medicine in the German town of Baden-Baden until 1962, when he fled the country after being tipped off that the authorities were about to prosecute him.

If he is still alive, Heim will be 94 years old.

In southern Chile, there is the German colony of ex nazi refugees, now called Villa Baviera. Under the leadership of paedophile nazi cult leader Paul Schaefer, then called Colonia Dignidad, it was a torture center for the secret police of Chilean dictator Pinochet.

  1. Hi gingersnap, I agree that Heim’s successfully hiding from justice for so long is not an argument to not have him on trial now. I do not agree with the bit “suffer like his victims did”; as no one should stoop to the criminal level of Heim and other nazis. There should be a fair trial to establish Heim’s guilt once and forever.


  2. Groups like the Simon Weisenthal center could have caught more Nazis if they gave large awards for capture and had something like America’s Most Wanted in order to get publicity .They could have gotten money from Jewish groups to put pictures in newspapers and on Tv . Now it’s too late.


  3. Hi Jill, I understand your point somewhat. However, offering large awards would have been at odds with the moral aims of organizations like the Simon Wiesenthal [correct spelling] center, as it might attract criminals and others just in it for lots of money.
