alois-brunnerThe world’s most-wanted Nazi criminal, Alois Brunner, reportedly lived in Syria for more than 50 years before his death in 2010, the Simon Weisenthal Center said today.

Once described as Nazi Adolf Eichmann’s “best man,” Brunner was responsible for sending 128,500 Jews to death camps. The SS captain fled to Syria during the 1950s, where he purportedly advised president Hafez Assad on torture methods.

Brunner survived two assassination attempts by the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, and is said to have been “unrepentant” before he died at age 98, according to Nazi hunter Efraim Zuroff. Read more at Times of Israel.
