In 1968, interviewers M.A. Janssen, P.M.E.B.M. Janssen and R.L. Schuursma spoke with Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005), founder of the Jüdische Historische Dokumentation. Wiesenthal collaborated with the Israeli secret service during his lifetime, which led to the arrest of Eichmann. His documentation center contributed to this. In 1977, the Simon Wiesenthal Center was named and established after him. The Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies was also named after him.


Virtually his entire life, Wiesenthal devoted himself to tracking down Nazis. As a Holocaust survivor, he has always been committed to this. In this interview, he speaks about his experiences with concentration camps, the GDR and war criminals
