As It Happened: The Last Nazis - The Hunt For Doctor Death
The Last Nazis - The Hunt For Doctor Death
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  June 10, 2011

In the autumn of 1941, a young Austrian doctor named Aribert Heim was assigned to the Mauthausen Concentration Camp. In just six weeks, he murdered hundreds of inmates by carrying out horrific and needless experiments. Mauthausen survivors knew him simply as 'Dr Death'. Heim evaded capture and has never answered for his crimes, but now, 60 years on and with Heim well into his 90s, fresh evidence has emerged suggesting that he might still be alive. The hunt is now on for Doctor Death.
