 GUSTAV WAGNERGustav Wagner was from Austria. ( Vienna). He was a master sergent of SS organization and he worked in programme t 4 In extermination camp . In 1940 he was in camps hardamar and hearthien where lakhs of Jews were gassed. As he gained lot of experience in killing, he was sent to sobibor to set up the camp. he was the starter deputy commandant of concentration camp at sobibor. His official designation was quarter master Sargent. He was active in the operation Reinhard of eliminating Jews from Germany and occupied countries’ e was blond handsome but was a beast. He at times pulled babies from the hands of moms and tore them apart and laughed..He regularly beat up some body or other to his fill and finally shoot him on the spot. He selected those who could be made to work in camp , outside the camp and those who are required to be gassed. He was on leave when there was an uprising at the camp when few inmates escaped. W hen the camp was to be destroyed to erase evidence he got it dismantled by the inmates and later he shot them dead. After the war he escaped to Syria along with Franz stagl probably with the help of Vatican and escaped to Brazil further in 1950. he lived there under pseudo name with a pass port. However he was tracked by the nazi hunter and arrested in 1978. All requests from Poland, Israel and Austria were rejected to extradite him. Supreme Court of Brazil rejected such demands in 1979. He also gave a TV interview to BBC and he never felt regret for his deeds and said it was one of the jobs he had to do. Wagner was found dead in 1980 in his room at sao Paulo with a knife in his chest and his lawyer confirmed that he committed suicide.thus he escaped trials by allies.T here is however an event of doubt about his nature of death .. Whether it was suicide or a murder by an agency.I t is very very rare that some one can stab himself in chest with a knife.An action by Mossad can not be ruled out as they were hunting for Nazis.
