The Simon Wiesenthal Center Israel's office was established to locate and help bring to justice Nazi war criminals around the world. As Nazi war criminal legislation did not exist in many countries, the Simon Wiesenthal Center played a pivotal role in convincing foreign governments to pass laws enabling the prosecution of Nazi war criminals. Hundreds of suspects in more than a dozen countries were apprehended as a result of these efforts. Over the years, this has expanded to include the fight for historical truth in many of the countries where the Holocaust took place and the ongoing efforts to combat the growing tide of antisemitism.
