Distinguished documentary-maker John Keir is putting the finishing touches to a new film exposing New Zealand’s failure to bring Nazi war criminals who fled its shores to justice.

Dr Efraim Zuroff, director of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre in Jerusalem, has spent most of his working life in pursuit of Nazis who have not been brought to law.

He told J-Wire: “I have not yet seen John’s film, but I can say that New Zealand was the only Anglo-Saxon democracy to which Nazi war criminals escaped after World War II posing as innocent refugees fleeing Communism, which failed to enable legal action to be taken against these Holocaust perpetrators. The United States found a way to prosecute them under existing laws (but not for war crimes), whereas Canada in 1987, Australia in 1989, and the UK in 1991, all passed special laws to allow the prosecution of Nazi war criminals living in their countries, but New Zealand failed to provide any legal remedy for the problem and hence all the Holocaust perpetrators who emigrated there were spared prosecution and punishment.”

Media reports state that 46 wanted Nazi criminals fled to New Zealand after the war.

Keir’s film is scheduled to be shown on New Zealand television next year.

    Let New Zealnd uncover and punish the criminals. Be careful of what you wish for, the laws may conme back to bite Zionists visiting New Zealand though.
