July 18, 2012
The world’s most wanted Nazi war criminal has been tracked down in Budapest, Hungary thanks to a joint investigation by the Simon Wiesenthal center here in Israel and the British newspaper, The Sun. 97 year-old Laszlo Csatary is suspected of sending nearly 16,000 Jews from the ghetto in Kosice to Auschwitz in 1944. As the commander of the police force in what was then a Hungarian city, he allegedly helped organize and oversee deportations to the death camp. Evidence also allegedly shows Csatary brutally beat and tortured Jews in the ghetto.
He was found living quietly in a nice neighborhood of Budapest…an elderly man in his 90s who surely no one suspected had such a dark past… Dr. Efraim Zuroff has been trying to track down Csatary for years. He is the chief Nazi hunter for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an organization dedicated to bringing Nazi war criminals to justice. A Czechoslovakian court found Csatary guilty of war crimes in 1948, but he had already escaped from Europe. He was sentenced to death in absentia. It was in Canada where Csatary hid from the law, working as an art dealer in Montreal and Toronto. When prosecutors opened a case against him in the 1990s, he disappeared again.
Dr. Zuroff got a tip that Csatary was hiding in Budapest, Hungary and he provided that intelligence to The Sun. …
Some Holocaust survivors here in Israel expressed satisfaction that Csatary had been identified, but many also said they were disappointed he’d lived a long life before being caught. It’s now up to Hungary to take action against the alleged Nazi criminal. Prosecutors in Budapest say they are reviewing all the evidence against him that was given to them by the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
This video from today is called Nazi war crimes suspect Csatary dies.

Nazi suspect (98) in Hungary dies
Update: Monday 12 Aug 2013, 09:50
In Hungary, Laszlo Csatary (98) has died; the former police chief who last year was indicted in his own country for crimes in World War II.
Csatary stood accused of involvement in deporting more than 15,000 Jews who were murdered in Auschwitz. He was police chief in Kosice, a city in present-day Slovakia, which was occupied by Hungary, an ally of Nazi Germany.
Czechoslovakia in 1948 sentenced him to death in absentia. He then had fled to Canada. In 2012 he was arrested in Budapest, where journalists had tracked him.
