A Dutch-born man who was on the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s list of most-wanted Nazi criminals has died at age 90, the BBC reported.
Klaas Carel Faber, who served in an SS unit, was sentenced to death in 1947 for the deaths of 22 Jews at the Westerbork transit camp, the BBC said. Westerbork was the transit point to concentration camps for thousands of Dutch Jews, including Anne Frank.
Faber’s term was commuted to life, but he escaped in 1952 and fled to Germany. There, he received German citizenship and avoided multiple attempts to extradite him.
