Jewish human rights group the Simon Wiesenthal Centre has put up 2,000 posters depicting the entrance gate of the Nazi death camp Auschwitz in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne asking the public to come forward with information that may lead to the arrest of Nazis 70 years after the end of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich.

Efraim Zuroff, the centre's top Nazi hunter, estimates there are still about 60 people alive in Germany who are still fit to stand trial for the crimes they allegedly committed. Some are suspected of serving as guards at Nazi death camps or being members of the death squads.
