Nazi who murdered 15,700 Hungarian Jews living quietly in Budapest!

He is 97 years old but he was unable to flee justice forever.
The world's most wanted Nazi war criminal that helped send 15,700 Jews to their deaths in Auschwitz has been spotted by the British News media, The Sun.

Sadistic Ladislaus Csizsik-Csatary, 97, was a police commander in charge of a Jewish ghetto in Kassa, Hungary, during World War II.

He took pleasure in beating women with a whip he carried on his belt, according to documents discovered by the Nazi hunters, Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem.
Csizsik-Csatary also forced Jews to dig trenches in frozen ground with their hands, forced dissident Jews to take stress positions for hours, beat Jews with a lead dog and oversaw a policy of shoot at sight if they tried to escape.

He fled Kassa now renamed Kosice, Slovakia after the victory of the Allies and was sentenced to death for war crimes in his absence, in Czechoslovakia in 1948.
But Csizsik-Csatary created a new identity, appearing as an art dealer in Canada.
When his cover was blown in Canada in 1997 his citizenship was revoked and the government began building a case against him. He fled before the deportation papers could be served.
For 15 years his whereabouts were a mystery.

However, a team of The Sun tracked him down to a two bedroom apartment in an upscale district of Budapest, Hungary.
Researchers were given details of where to look by the Wiesenthal Center.
The human rights organization had given a tip after the launch of Operation Last Chance, designed to bring World War Two Nazis to justice before they die.

Once The Sun team found Csizsik-Csatary they were able to establish that he was a Nazi collaborator,  the number one on the list of most wanted by the Wiesenthal Center.

The team Confronted him at his apartment where he had been living quietly among families that do not know his chilling past.

Csizsik-Csatary, speaking English with a Canadian accent after decades living in Montreal and Toronto, opened the door only in socks and underpants. When asked about his Nazi past he just said “go away” and slammed the door.
