Allan A. Ryan, Who Hunted Down Nazis Hiding in America, Dies at 77

posted on February 7, 2023

Michael S. Rosenwald of The Washington Post writes an obituary for Allan A. Ryan, a former Department of Justice employee charged with hunting down Nazis hiding in the United States in the 1980s. He initiated 25 deportation proceedings against former Nazis during his tenure. Rosenwald writes, “The presence of collaborators in the United States was ignored for years, Mr. Ryan maintained, because of antisemitism and general apathy toward the plight of Jews during the war.” Ryan died of a heart attack last month at the age of 77.
