The newspaper The New York Times published a full version of the secret report of the Ministry of Justice, which refers to the patronage of the U.S. Nazi criminals.
600-page document, which was kept secret by the last four years, is evidence of more than two dozen cases of cooperation with former U.S. agencies German war criminals for the last 30 years. The Ministry of Justice refused to make public the report from 2006, referring to his nedorabotannost, but about a month ago in the light came much edited version, from which, in comparison with the original, disappeared many facts.
Among the published information highlighted information about U.S. attempts to find the remains of Dr. Josef Mengele, known in the Auschwitz concentration camp by the nickname the Angel of Death (Part of his skull was kept in a cabinet in the Ministry of Justice), the assassination of former SS soldier in New Jersey, as well as the mistaken identity Treblinka guard nicknamed Ivan the Terrible.
The report also highlights the achievements and failures of lawyers, historians and investigators of the Special Investigations Division of the Ministry of Justice, created in 1979 specifically to detect and deport Nazis. For 30 years the department was able to identify and deport some 300 supporters of the Nazis.
The paper also shows that only the U.S. has penetrated far fewer war criminals from Germany than 10,000 — a figure called the official U.S. sources.
Previously, various scientists and officials have acknowledged that a number of German scientists after the war, worked with the CIA, but the published The New York Times document shows that the U.S. government has granted permission and other Nazis to enter the country, knowing about their past.
