The World

March 26, 1985

The United States and Israel agreed to cooperate more closely in the search for Josef Mengele, the Auschwitz doctor who is the most wanted Nazi war criminal still at large, the Israel Justice Ministry announced. Neal Sher, head of the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, was quoted as saying that the U.S. Marshals Service, a unit used to track down escaped criminals, is among American agencies being used in the effort to capture the man believed responsible for the deaths of 400,000 people in the concentration camp's gas chambers. Mengele fled to South America at the end of World War II.
