The Simon Wiesenthal Center suspects someone is lying: Nazi hunters doubt ‘Dr. Death’ truly dead.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center said on Thursday it had “serious doubts” about reports that Aribert Heim, dubbed ‘Dr. Death’ for killing concentration camp inmates with lethal injections to the heart, died in Cairo in 1992.

Efraim Zuroff, director of the Israel office of the center that hunts Nazi war criminals from World War Two, told Reuters “there is no doubt” Heim had lived in Egypt.

“But the question is whether he died in Egypt. We have serious doubts about that,” Zuroff said of the report carried by German television station ZDF on Wednesday and The New York Times. He cited the absence of any remains or proof of death.

He said German police had told him they had also not shut the case on Heim, the most notorious of surviving perpetrators of the Nazi killings of 6 million Jews during the war, who has been missing since evading German police in 1962.
