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.

Martin Bormann, Hitler's Private Secretary

Martin Bormann

Martin Bormann, who served as Adolph Hitler’s private secretary and was a high-ranking Nazi Party official, was one of two men who very briefly inherited control of Nazi Germany after Hitler committed suicide. The other was Josef Goebbels. Bormann is famous for signing the Oct. 9, 1942 order which stated: “The permanent elimination of the Jews from the territories of Greater Germany can no longer be carried out by emigration but by the use of ruthless force in the special camps of the East.” On July 1, 1943, Bormann ordered that Eichmann be put in charge of exterminating Jews — or “resettling” Jews, as Bormann demanded the genocide officially be referred to. Bormann’s ruthlessness extended beyond the Jewish population to many other ethnic groups, like the Slavs. On Aug. 19, 1942, he wrote: “The Slavs are to work for us. In so far as we do not need them, they may die. Slav fertility is not desirable.”
