Comment: Although we haven’t discussed the topic in some time, the Chilean Nazi enclave known as Colonia Dignidad has figured prominently in discussions of Operation Condor, the diaspora of Nazi war criminals to Latin America, as well as the Pinochet regime in Chile.
Paul Schaefer, a former Nazi who fled Germany in 1961 and founded a cult-like commune in Chile, died Saturday in a prison hospital.
He was 88.
Schaefer was serving a 20-year sentence at the national penitentiary in Santiago for sexually abusing children at the notorious commune known as Colonia Dignidad (The Dignity Colony). . . .
