The Red Cross and the Vatican both helped thousands of Nazi war criminals and collaborators to escape after the second world war, according to a book that pulls together evidence from unpublished documents.

The Red Cross has previously acknowledged that its efforts to help refugees were used by Nazis because administrators were overwhelmed, but the research suggests the numbers were much higher than thought.

Gerald Steinacher, a research fellow at Harvard University, was given access to thousands of internal documents in the archives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The documents include Red Cross travel documents issued mistakenly to Nazis in the postwar chaos.

They throw light on how and why mass murderers such as Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele and Klaus Barbie and thousands of others evaded capture by the allies.

By comparing lists of wanted war criminals to travel documents, Steinacher says Britain and Canada alone inadvertently took in around 8,000 former Waffen-SS members in 1947, many on the basis of valid documents issued mistakenly.

The documents – which are discussed in Steinacher's book Nazis on the Run: How Hitler's henchmen fled justice – offer a significant insight into Vatican thinking, particularly, because its own archives beyond 1939 are still closed. The Vatican has consistently refused to comment.

Steinacher believes the Vatican's help was based on a hoped-for revival of European Christianity and dread of the Soviet Union. But through the Vatican Refugee Commission, war criminals were knowingly provided with false identities.

The Red Cross, overwhelmed by millions of refugees, relied substantially on Vatican references and the often cursory Allied military checks in issuing travel papers, known as 10.100s.

It believed it was primarily helping innocent refugees although correspondence between Red Cross delegations in Genoa, Rome and Geneva shows it was aware Nazis were getting through.

"Although the ICRC has publicly apologised, its action went well beyond helping a few people," said Steinacher.

Steinacher says the documents indicate that the Red Cross, mostly in Rome or Genoa, issued at least 120,000 of the 10.100s, and that 90% of ex-Nazis fled via Italy, mostly to Spain, and North and South America – notably Argentina.

Former SS members often mixed with genuine refugees and presented themselves as stateless ethnic Germans to gain transit papers. Jews trying to get to Palestine via Italy were sometimes smuggled over the border with escaping Nazis.

Steinacher says that individual Red Cross delegations issued war criminals with 10.100s "out of sympathy for individuals … political attitude, or simply because they were overburdened". Stolen documents were also used to whisk Nazis to safety. He said: "They were really in a dilemma. It was difficult. It wanted to get rid of the job. Nobody wanted to do it."

The Red Cross refused to comment directly on Steinacher's findings but the organisation says on its website: "The ICRC has previously deplored the fact that Eichmann and other Nazi criminals misused its travel documents to cover their tracks."
Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading and supporting The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our journalism accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.

The Guardian will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.

Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.

"...advanced forms of biological warfare
that can target specific genotypes may
transform biological warfare from the
realm of terror to a politically useful tool."

Who said this? Hitler? Goebbels? Attila The
Hun? Mussolini? Ivan The Terrible?

This is a statement overtly supporting
GENOCIDE. This is not politics as usual.

What would you think if the President of
the United States said this? Would you
care? Would you worry about your own
genotype? Would you be concerned that
you could be targeted? Are you ready to
have a mist of these advanced forms of
biological warfare in your neighborhood?
How will you know that your specific
genotype will not be targeted? Who will
die around you? Will your family survive?

In fact, this is a quote by a group called
the Project For The New American
Century, and its 2000 document
"Rebuilding America's Defenses." The
Project For The New American Century is a
think-tank group pursuing exactly
genocide right here in the United States of
America. Unbelievable? See the think-
tank's website at


How does this relate to the President Of
The United States? This document was
written by, and signed by, many of the
current Bush administration officials. They
want to kill people who are not like them.
Just look at the signatories.

Science Fiction? This is not some distant
futuristic plan. This technology is available
now. It is not perfect, but it is being
refined quickly and methodically.

The Media is not covering this because it is
run by five huge companies. Two are
military contractors that make billions on
selling weapons of war (General Electric
and Westinghouse), the third is owned by
a foreign national with a very obvious
political agenda (Newscorp), the fourth
has very close CIA ownership contacts
going back to Bill Casey and Capitol Cities
(Disney), and the fifth has ownership
connections with the other four and
recently ousted the 'liberal' Ted Turner
from its board (Time Warner). These five
companies own most of the major
information outlets in the United States--
movie studios, radio stations, record
companies, magazines, internet sites, and
more, all appearing as if they are
independent, but all under these five
overlapping umbrellas. We need to break
up the media for the sake of democracy,
shatter it into a free press.

The Democrats are not pointing this out
for many reasons.They are complicit in
taking corporate money and structured
settlements. Even those Democrats who
would oppose this cannot speak out for
many reasons: they would be discredited
and destroyed by the media, they could be
killed like many of the scientists related to
the anthrax scare, or they could simply
want one of those high-paying corporate
crony jobs. We need to cut out the
corporate money entirely. The time to act
is now. You don't need a PhD or even to
have completed one of the many online
degree programs to get out there and
make a difference.

The time is now and the person is you.

Contact the media. Contact your
representatives. Join a protest. Donate to
appropriate organizations. You are not
alone. You must act now!
