Nazi Hunter

Sues Wiesenthal Center

You're PROTECTING a War Criminal

Some of the most powerful Jews in the U.S have concocted a massive conspiracy to discredit a Nazi hunter who claims he uncovered some explosive new information about the Holocaust ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

The Nazi hunter behind the suit is Mark Gould (pictured above) -- who claims he recently managed to track down a 98-year-old former SS lieutenant colonel named Bernhard Frank (pictured below) ... and got him to admit he had a MAJOR role in the Germany's decision to exterminate the Jews. 

Gould claims he thought his findings would impress the honchos at the famous Wiesenthal Center in L.A. -- a powerful Jewish organization dedicated to documenting the Holocaust -- since he had been working with them since 2004. But Gould was wrong.

Instead, Gould claims the leaders of the Wiesenthal Center ran a smear campaign against him in 2010 -- hoping to discredit Gould's findings so Frank would NOT be portrayed as a key Nazi figure.

As for why the Weisenthal Center is trying to discredit Gould ... one Center official published an article saying Frank was like a secretary who prepared documents but had no real decision-making power.  The suggestion -- Nazi hunters should focus on the honchos, not the lackeys.  And the Center believes Gould is after fame, not justice.

Gould claims in his lawsuit the Center never presented any proof that would discredit his work --but still ran a defamatory campaign against him, to destroy his credibility.

Now, Gould thinks the Center should pay for the "hypocrisy and betrayal" -- he's suing for unspecified damages.

A rep for the Center tells TMZ ... they have not seen the lawsuit, and therefor cannot comment on the case.

he's a creep    

the Catholics where crucified and eaten by lions while crowds of Jews cheered on, the American Indians where raped of their very country and squelched by the British and Eropean's, the American Mexicans where prejudiced against and the list goes on and on. Hell in every country in the world women are raped daily and used and they all grow, learn to forgive and go on. Jewish people of the world -GET OVER YOURSELVES - and forgive and move on. Stop being victims! PEACE OUT.

why is it the Jews and the Blacks in America continue to focus on the past and never, ever forgive and move forward when other groups, i.e., Catholics who were fed to the lions, and crucified Jesus, FORGIVE and move forward? What's with the constant whine? Are they just a weak and unforgiving part of society and is that why the Middle East is forever in war as is the neighborhoods where the enthic % of Black persons dominates are also constantly at war killing one another? why can these groups not be strong and forgive and grow and move on? why must they hang on to being VICTIMS? it takes away from their character and they've earned more self respect then they give themselves and frankly I'm just so sick of the constant whine. Mature, learn to forgive and move the hell on, drop the ball and chain act. It's old now. Every society, religion etc has it's cross to bare. How about it's time to walk in Grace. Peace Out.

Catholics where fed to lions while the Jews looked on cheering...they got over it so can you. Enough...MOVE FORWARD FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!

@En Todo Momento: Thank-you, I was actually going to mention that in my original post. The man was a lower-ranking officer, but, was obviously aware of the evil "mission".
Now, he's 98, so compassion should be a given.
Maybe meet some Concentration Camp survivors, and
seek their forgiveness?

I have read the info of this alledged Nazi SS Commander. Why Wiesenthal Center dragging their at this issue? Get him! Frank had his hand in killing the Jews. I think they are waiting for him to die.

Who the hell cares what is happening in every nook and cranny of the Jewish community? That is not the reason I come to this website. If the word f*g is whispered on a street corner TMZ is all over the story. Please stop showing your biased towards this community unless you plan on reporting equally the injustices and headlines of every other ethnic/religious community.
