Nazi criminals received after the war tens of millions from US
the New York Times.
The payments were suspended early this year, when a new law entered: No Social Security for the Nazis Act. It involved four Nazis who received benefits. The amounts paid are higher than was first thought.
Barely researchAfter World War II, thousands of Nazis fled to the US. Because there has been done hardly any research into their past, they could just use the social systems. Only in the eighties the first ex-Nazis were deported.
AP spent last year the story of the former Auschwitz guard Jacob Denzinger who had built up a new life after the war in Ohio. In 1989 the US began a procedure to strip him of his American citizenship. He moved to Germany and then got each year a payment of $ 1,500.
