Leaked DOJ report revealed Nazi 'safe havens' in US
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On November 13, 2010, the New York Times released a report revealing that US intelligence officials knowingly allowed Nazis to settle in US "safe havens" following World War II. The 600-page Department of Justice (DOJ) report documents cases of Nazis who were aided by US officials and described the actions of the Office of Special Investigations (OSI), which was created in 1979 to denaturalize and deport Nazis in the US. The OSI was merged with the Domestic Security Section of the DOJ in March 2010, but during its original tenure it was responsible for deporting or prosecuting some 300 persons involved in Nazi war crimes.

Learn more about the continued prosecution of Nazi war criminals and the Department of Justice from the JURIST news archive.
