Misc[edit]

There is a banner on this article now, saying: "The neutrality of this article is disputed. Please see discussion on the talk page." ---and then there is nothing on the talk-page. Could the editor(s) who have inserted the POV-banner please give a reason, here on the talk-page? Thanks.

Also: the best summing up of Alois Brunners life, at least his post-1945 life, that I have seen has been in Robert Fisk´s:

  • Pity the Nation: Lebanon at War (3rd ed. 2001). London: Oxford University Press; 727 pages. ISBN 0192801309

...strangely, that book (or the original articles) aren´t mentioned here. According to Fisk it was in Egypt that Brunner was employed as a "consultant" in torture etc. The Syrian Bath-regime "inherited" him from a previous regime (according to Fisk, who tried to interview him). I´ll insert the info. when I find the correct ref. (if nobody else has done so in the the mean time). Regards Huldra 12:05, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

Also: there is pityful little about all the nastiness he commited (or, more formally: is accused of comitting) during WWII. I believe some came to light during the Eichman-trial, at least I remember him mentioned in Hannah Arendts book about the trial ("The banality of Evil"). That should also be added to this article.

333 000USD[edit]

Any other Wiki informs about 333 000 USD reward. Xx236 10:58, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

ratlines / CIA[edit]

These kind of statements need better sources than just a website [1]. The only other source I could readily find is a (1998) book by Peter Wyden, but this book does not provide footnotes (neither does the website link). There probably should be more info on Brunner in due time, because of the recent declassification of many documents of this period. Intangible2.0 16:04, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Bot report : Found duplicate references ![edit]

In the last revision I edited, I found duplicate named references, i.e. references sharing the same name, but not having the same content. Please check them, as I am not able to fix them automatically :)

€333,000 reward[edit]

How would if be possible to have a reward issued in Euros in 1995? Boothferry (talk) 21:23, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Connection to the Gehlen Organization[edit]

Shouldn't his connection to the Gehlen Organization be mentioned in this article at some point? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.28.170.95 (talk) 20:07, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Reliable witnesses?[edit]

The quote: "According to The Guardian, he was last seen alive by reliable witnesses in 1992, and by journalists in 1996."

So... journalists are not reliable witnesses?

On reflection, that seems apt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ketchumk (talkcontribs) 20:45, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Categorisation[edit]

This article was tagged with Category:Syrian Nazis, however there is no mention in the article of any Syrian citizenship. I have removed the category until a reliable source is provided. Peacemaker67 (send... over) 22:19, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
