Discusses Nazi activities in Chile during World War II and Nazi war criminals who found refuge there after the war. Pt. 2 (pp. 237-321) focuses on Walter Rauff (1906-1984), who was responsible for the murder of thousands of civilians, mostly Jews, in the USSR in 1941-42 through the use of gas vans, a "project" that he developed and administrated. At the end of the war he escaped to Syria, then to Ecuador, and in 1958 he immigrated to Chile, where he became a citizen and worked for German companies. In 1961 a Hannover court asked the Chilean government to arrest him and, one year later, demanded his extradition. The case was brought before the Chilean High Court which, in 1963, decided that according to Chilean law he could no longer be tried for his war crimes. Continuing international pressure on Chilean governments, as well as the intervention of Simon Wiesenthal, did not change the verdict. Pt. 3 (pp. 323-366) speculates about the existence of other Nazi war criminals in Chile.
