Last Chance for Operation Last Chance

The Simon Wiesenthal Center campaign has legs, at the Charlotte Observer, "Wiesenthal Center expands hunt for Nazi suspects":

MUNICH The Simon Wiesenthal Center is expanding its poster and reward campaign in Germany in its push to track down Nazi war criminals before it is too late, following a strong response to its initial launch.

The center's top Nazi-hunter, Efraim Zuroff, said Monday that Operation Last Chance II, launched in July, resulted in tips on 111 possible suspects from 19 countries.

"The response was way beyond anything we expected," he said in a telephone interview.
