Cold war politics can only explain the minority of the cases. According to such and argument, any other Nazi is a western spy. This is coherent with Communist dialectic propaganda, that every non-communist is a war loving facist, but it was never the Truth.Originally Posted by KSO
The truth is always the simplests of explainations. Thesame lawers, judges and other functioners who worked under the Nazi ragime, continued their role in the decades that followed the war. The same Nazis, were supposed to judge other Nazi crimminals. Extradiction was not an option, same goes to snaching operations, which are violation of German and Austrian sovereignity.
Bottom line, Germans and Austrians are Nazis and the let most of the Nazis go free. Justice was not met.
