Austria Renews Hunt for Nazi Fugitives





One was a concentration camp doctor who purportedly injected poison into the hearts of Jews. The other was once an aide to Holocaust mastermind Adolf Eichmann. Austria wants to find Alois Brunner and Aribert Heim, both in their 90s if still alive, and bring them to justice.

A notice posted on the Justice Ministry's Web site this week features photos and descriptions of Brunner and Heim and offers rewards for information leading to their capture. Brunner, the most-wanted Nazi war criminal, according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is described as having mutilated hands and only one eye, after reportedly being disfigured by mail bombs.
