Prosecution of Nazi War Criminals (1980)

It has been estimated that about 200 alleged Nazi war criminals reside in the United States. Congress has appropriated $2 million for a Special Litigation Unit under the supervision of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department to upgrade the Unit’s operations. To aid in the more effective performance of its responsibilities, the staff of the Special Litigation Unit has been vastly increased by attorneys, investigators and historians.

The Women’s League for Conservative Judaism urges:

  1. That the United States Government give high priority to seeking out and prosecuting Nazi war criminals residing in the United States;
  2. The Jewish community to monitor these activities and to cooperate in gathering witnesses to testify;
  3. Its members to cooperate in any way to see that the unprosecuted Nazis are brought to justice.
