The Hunt for Nazis: The Real-Life Captures That Inspired The Debt

Posted August 22, 2011 to photo album "The Hunt for Nazis: The Real-Life Captures That Inspired The Debt"

John Madden’s THE DEBT tells the tale of a trio of Mossad agents who hunted down a wanted Nazi war criminal. We explore the stories of the many real-life Nazi war criminals who went into hiding after the war, and the people who tracked them down to bring them to justice.

Aribert Ferdinand Heim, "Dr. Death"

Aribert “Dr. Death” Heim

Aribert Ferdinand Heim, an Austrian, was an SS doctor at the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria. Known by the moniker “Dr. Death,” Heim experimented on Jewish prisoners by injecting various substances, including petrol, water, phenol and poison, into their hearts. Following the war, he spent some time in a U.S. prisoner of war camp, after which he moved to Baden Baden, where he practiced gynecology. In 1962, he heard that police were waiting at his home and he went into hiding. According to his son, he ended up in Egypt and died there in 1992. But his death is disputed. Both Germany and Austria offered a reward for his capture. He was said to be in Spain, Paraguay, Egypt, the Balkans and Canada. In one report, a former Israeli Air Force colonel, Danny Baz, claimed to be a member of a group of Nazi hunters, code named The Owl, who kidnapped Heim in Canada and took him to the California costal island of Santa Catalina, where he was executed. The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem and Serge Klarsfeld say Baz is lying. In 2008, the Simon Wiesenthal Center listed Heim as one of the 10 most wanted Nazi war criminals.
