List of Most Wanted Nazi War Criminals according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center

Current versions of the GNU FDL article on WP may contain information useful to the improvement of this article
Once again, an article on WP that should have the word 'genocide' in it, but does not. This one does not even have the more euphemistic 'Holocaust'. Same goes for the related Wikipedia:List of Axis personnel indicted for war crimes

Nazi War Criminals are suspected of committing war crimes, usually genocide (WP), on behalf of Nazi Germany or any of the Axis Powers during Wprld War II.
