Best Answer

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.
