Simon Wiesenthal Center's 'Most Wanted' list

Each year the Simon Wiesenthal Center publishes a list of its most wanted surviving Nazi suspects. They are "wanted" because they have not been punished, even if they have been tried. In some cases it is unclear whether they are still alive. They remain on the list until it is proven that they are dead.
