When the war was over some were arrested and did time in prison.

Some got hanged (see Nuremberg trails). Others went off through the

"nazi underground" system and ended up in places like South America

and began new lives...and were never brought to justice. Some

simply got forgotten or overlooked in the post-WW2 chaos. Europe

was in a huge mess for many years after the war.Many followed after

Hitler and commited suicide Some got taken prisoner and ended up in

Russia. Some the allied intelligence services etc grabbed because

they had special knowledge and they ended up spying for the US and

Britain. In war, not all offenders get brought to justice.
