A wanted Holocaust-era war criminal, accused of having a hand in the deportation of 15,700 Jews to a Nazi concentration camp, has been found living in Hungary for the past 15 years after fleeing Canada.
Laszlo Csizsik-Csatary, 97, has been residing in a two-bedroom apartment in Budapest, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper, which found him through a tip from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights group in Jerusalem.
Answering the door in a long-sleeve shirt and underwear, Csatary told the newspaper, “I don’t want to discuss it,” when asked about Canada revoking his citizenship in 1997.
He was also questioned about his role in World War II helping to organize the Nazi’s deportation of Jews to death camps, according to The Sun’s report Sunday.
“No I didn’t do it, go away from here,” Csatary said in English before slamming the door.
