I have always cooperated fully with German authorities, when asked, over the prosecution of suspected war criminals, and will continue to do so, i passionately believe in bringing such people to justice whenever possible. Indeed, if you read the conclusion of my book on Auschwitz, you will see how strongly I criticize the lack of prosecution of members of the SS at Auschwitz after the war and call it 'a collective failure of the international community.’.
