The Gestapo was Nazi Germany’s feared secret police force. The first head of the Gestapo was Rudolf Diels but for most of its existence, the Gestapo was led by Heinrich Müller.

During World War II the Gestapo was under the direct control of Heinrich Himmler who controlled all the police units within Nazi Germany. The Gestapo acted outside of the normal judicial process and it had its own courts and effectively acted as judge, jury and frequently executioner.

The Gestapo’s main purpose was to hunt out those considered a threat to Nazi Germany. By the time World War II started these included Jews, Communists, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, or basically anyone who was thought to challenge the hegemony of the Nazi Party within Germany.

Karl Adolf Eichmann was the worst of all Nazis. He delighted in killing and worked hard to become a more efficient killer. He was responsible for the extermination of millions of human beings. Eichmann headed Gestapo Department IV B4 for Jewish Affairs, serving as a self proclaimed 'Jewish specialist.' It was Eichmann who was the man responsible for keeping the trains rolling from all over Europe to death camps during the Final Solution.

After the war and with the help of the SS underground, he fled to Argentina and lived under the assumed name of Ricardo Klement for ten years until Israeli Mossad agents abducted him on May 11, 1960. He was placed on trial in Israel and was found guilty on all counts, sentenced to death and hanged at Ramleh Prison, May 31, 1962.

A fellow Nazi reported Eichmann once said “he would leap laughing into the grave because the feeling that he had five million people on his conscience would be for him a source of extraordinary satisfaction.”

Josef Mengele was a German doctor and Nazi War Criminal who escaped justice after World War II. During the war, Mengele worked at the infamous Auschwitz death camp, where he conducted twisted experiments on the Jewish inmates before sending them to their deaths.

Nicknamed “the Angel of Death,” Mengele escaped to South America after the war. In spite of a massive manhunt led by his victims, Mengele eluded capture and drowned on a Brazilian beach in 1979. That he died poor and alone was of little consolation to his surviving victims, who would have preferred to see him tried and hanged.

Much of Europe and Russia lay in ruins following World War II, the most destructive conflict in the history of humanity. 54 million persons had died, most of whom were civilians. Another 60 million civilians had been uprooted from their homes or seen them destroyed.

The immediate postwar problem for the victorious Allies in Germany was coping with the 11 million displaced persons now wandering around. This included people from all over Europe and Russia who had been slave laborers, military conscripts, prisoners of war, and concentration camp inmates, including about 100,000 Jews who had survived the Final Solution.

More importantly was to bring Nazi war criminals to justice. Remarkably, just 6 months after the war ended, the Allies were ready to prosecute these criminals. Beginning on Tuesday, November 20, 1945, 21 of the highest-ranking Nazis went on trial in Nuremberg.

The unprecedented 4-count indictment included: conspiracy to wage aggressive war, crimes against peace, war Crimes and crimes against humanity. These crimes included acts encompassing extermination, enslavement, persecution on political or racial grounds, involuntary resettlement, and inhumane acts against civilian populations.

Power point #4 is entitled, World War II - European Theater - Nuremburg Trails and contains 26 slides and covers the following:

After World War II, thousands of Nazis and wartime collaborators from France, Croatia, Belgium and other parts of Europe were looking for a new home as far away from Germany and the Nuremberg Trials as possible.

Argentina welcomed hundreds if not thousands of them: the Juan Domingo Perón regime went to great lengths to get them there, including: sending agents to Europe to ease their passage and providing travel documents. Argentina welcomed some of the most evil of all Nazis, who were accused of heinous crimes, including: Ante Pavelic, whose Croatian regime murdered hundreds of thousands of Serbs, Jews and Gypsies, Dr. Josef Mengele, whose cruel experiments were unbearably painful and demented, and Adolf Eichmann, who was Hitler’s architect of the Holocaust.

The question is, why on Earth would Argentina want these men?
