The Simon Wiesenthal Center has announced that it will match the reward of 130,000 euros ($156,000) currently being offered by the German government for information which will lead to the arrest of escaped Nazi war criminal Dr. Aribert Heim. Heim, who is wanted for the murder by lethal injection of hundreds of inmates of the Mauthausen (Austria) concentration camp, is the number one target of the Center's "Operation: Last Chance," which offers financial rewards for information which facilitates the prosecution and punishment of Nazi war criminals. In meetings last week in Vienna, the center's chief Nazi-hunter, Israel director Dr. Efraim Zuroff, urged Austrian Justice Minister Karin Gastinger and Interior Minister Liese Prokop to have the Austrian government announce a similar reward.
