Ex-Nazi Dies

Ex-nazi, Kurt Waldheim, ex-UN Secretary-General and onetime President of Austria has died, the Guardian reports:

“The World Jewish Congress published supporting documents, some of which bore Waldheim’s signature or initials. But he insisted that his job was merely to verify their authenticity, not to act on the information or give orders.

As pressure mounted from all sides, Yugoslav newspapers published a facsimile of a 1947 document showing Waldheim’s name on a list of German officers who took part in the infamous Mount Kozara operation. According to some Yugoslav versions, 68,000 people – including 23,000 children – died in the offensive.”
