Alas, Nazi-ism didn't end with the Holocaust, and there has been a resurgance of neo-Nazi groups in Germany. Between October 1992 and April 1993, the Simon Wiesenthal Center ( conducted a covert operation to determine the strength, financial base, and ultimate leadership of Germany's neo-Nazi movement. Center officials also wanted to find out the links between Germany's radical right and similar organizations in the United States, and to determine the degree of commitment on the part of German police towards the enforcement of laws passed by the German parliament over the years to thwart the resurgence of Nazism in the Bundesrepublik. The results of this operation are documented and available on the net at the URL <>.

A Holocaust bibliography is also available at the URL <>. It contains thousands of listings for those interested in research.
