Wiesenthal Center urges opening of Eichmann files

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is urging Germany's Federal Intelligence Service to release all files on Nazi war criminals following a recent report the agency knew Adolf Eichmann was hiding in Buenos Aires as early as 1952.


The center's top Nazi-hunter, Efraim Zuroff, said Monday Germany is now good about attempting to bring Nazi criminals to justice but the report shows the "utter indifference of the German authorities at that time." He says the files could contribute to important historical research. (AP)
