Recent documentation shows that Australia
, among others, offered refuge to Nazi
scientists after WWII
. They "adopted" 35 nazis in total, 15 of which had been in the SS
and 6 of whom were wanted war criminals
The nazi scientists went to work directly in the defense department and greatly boosted the Aussie military infrastructure.
Great Britain brokered the deal. It's an ill wind that blows no good, as they say.
