Simon Wiesenthal was a well-known Nazi-hunter who dedicated his life to preserving the truth about the horrors of the Holocaust.

Wiesenthal was born in Austria-Hungary and grew up in Austria. Him and his family were rounded up and sent off to the concentration camps where he was forced into labor. He survived the war through a mixture of sheer willpower, pure chance and miracle.

Having survived the horrors of the Holocaust, Wiesenthal dedicated his life to hunting down Nazi murderers like Adolf Eichman and Franz Stangl.

The “Jewish James Bond” passed away having achieved his life mission of preserving the memory of the Holocaust by bringing many of those responsible to justice.
