Nazi War Criminal Klaas Faber Dead

A Nazi war criminal who escaped a life sentence in the Netherlands to live out his life in Germany, Klaas Carel Faber, died on Thursday at age 90, officials confirmed Saturday. Faber ranked at No. 3 on the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s list of the most-wanted Nazis up until his death—he was convicted in 1947 of involvement in the murder of 22 individuals. Escaping from the Netherlands in 1952, the SS volunteer fled to Germany, where he lived in freedom for decades despite efforts to extradite him. According to Dutch prosecutors, Faber was involved in killings at three locations in the Netherlands during the World War II.
