He opened the Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna in 1961 and continued to try to locate missing Nazi war criminals. After being forced to work as a slave labourer in Nazi concentration camps such as Janowska Plaszow and Mauthausen during the war Wiesenthal dedicated most of his life to tracking down and gathering information on fugitive Nazi war criminals so that they could be brought to trial. Shortly after Bruno Kreisky was inaugurated as Austrian chancellor in April 1970 Wiesenthal pointed out to the press that four of his new cabinet appointees had been members of the Nazi Party.
