Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily or are just fun topics! Today is November 30th, 2007, I’m Royce, and I am here to discuss the topic of Mr. Aribert Heim’s search.
After the Holocaust, and World War II, most Nazi officers assisting Adolf Hitler fled Europe and went to South America. They chose that particular place because the government was poorly operated, therefor most likely the Americans could not find them. Currently, there is a search for Aribert Heim that the reward is about half-a-million dollars. If alive, he would be 93 years old. So why would they offer such a great reward for such an old man?
Well, this man assisted Adolf Hitler in eliminating the Jewish. He was nicknamed “Dr. Death” for his awful ways of torture. He enjoyed in experimenting on the Jews to see how much pain they could take before dieing. He was the head of one of Hitler’s Concentration Camps. And he had killed hundreds of Jews during this time period.
Some of his favorite methods of killing were injecting gasoline into the victim’s heart, timing how long it would take for them to die. He also had killed a victim and used their skull as a paperweight on his desk.
Efraim Zuroff is head of the search for him and had said “The approach of money will work, for South America is very poor.”
Zuroff is also Jewish, and German. He said he wants Heim put to death. Do you think it is worth spending half-a-million dollars reward for those who find him? He would be a 93 year old man!
His daughter, currently living in Chile, where some former Nazis maybe have escaped to. “Surely she would prefer him not be the subject of a headhunt by all sorts of people who want money.” says Zuroff.
The search is in South America. The countries participating in the search are Chile, Brazil, and Uraguay. Keep an eye out, but for now, I’m Royce, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!
