Time is running out to bring to justice suspected Nazi war criminals, a leading Nazi hunter said as he prepared to present new developments Wednesday in his pursuit of three aging fugitives. Efraim Zuroff, chief Nazi hunter for the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, was meeting with Austria's justice and interior ministers to discuss efforts to prosecute the three, who are being pursued as part of "Operation Last Chance" - a push to track down fugitive suspects before they die. The three were identified as Dr. Aribert Heim, Milivoj Asner, and a female guard whose name was not released. Their ages and whereabouts were unknown, but all three were believed to be hiding in Austria. Operation Last Chance offers financial rewards in exchange for information leading to the arrest of those wanted for Nazi-era atrocities. It has been launched in Austria, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania. Before World War II, Austria was home to about 185,000 Jews, but an estimated 65,000 perished in the Holocaust.
