Officials: Alleged Nazi war criminal found in Hungary

A worldwide Jewish rights organization is pushing Hungarian authorities to prosecute a man it claims is a Nazi war criminal, recently discovered in Budapest, Hungary, who allegedly sent more than 15,000 Jews to Auschwitz in the spring of 1944.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center found Ladislaus Csizsik-Csatary as part of its "Last Chance" project, said Efraim Zuroff, director of the center's Israel office.

The center cooperated with British tabloid The Sun to photograph Csizsik-Csatary, who reportedly is 97, and ask him questions, Zuroff said. "We're the ones who found him; they're the ones who photographed him."

    There was once a great actor, who had a problem. He could no longerremember his lines. Finally after many years he finds a theatre wherethey are prepared to give him a chance to shine again. The director says,"This is the most important part, and it has only one line. You must walkonto the stage carrying a rose, you must hold the rose with just onefinger and your thumb to your nose, sniff the rose deeply and then say theline... 'Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.'" The actor is thrilled.All day long before the play he's practicing his line, over and overagain. Finally the time came.

    The curtain went up, the actor walked onto the stage, and with greatpassion, he delivered the line; "Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress".

    The theatre erupted, the audience screamed with laughter... and thedirector was steaming! "You bloody fool!" he cried, "You have ruined me!"

    The actor, quite bewildered, asked, "What happened, did I forget myline?" he asked.

    "No!" the director screamed.... "You forgot the bloody rose!"

    Hungary? Did they try looking in NASA, Chase Bank, or Bayer Pharmaceuticals? Lotsa Nazis in those places.
    Pictures of NASA rocket scientists are like a "who is who" portrait of ardent nazi supporters.

    ...reminds me of Arnold Schwarzeneggers last two movies. Directors had to schedule around Arnold forgetting his lines. Amazingly, as governator he remembered to drop California's 100 billion dollar lawsuit vs. the ENRON corporation though.
