Every effort should still be made to prosecute living Nazi war criminals, according to Dr Efraim Zuroff, who has dedicated his life to tracking down and prosecuting those responsible for atrocities of World War II.

The director of the Simon Wiesenthal centre in Israel says that of April 2009, there were at least 706 ongoing investigations into living Nazi war criminals.

"There is a very powerful message here," he says.

"If you commit crimes like this, there will always be someone who will be trying to find you, expose you and hold you responsible for your crimes."
