The history of South America's links to ex-Nazis has been fairly well documented and written about in books like 'The Boys From Brazil' and 'Grey Wolf', a documentary on the alleged escape of Adolf Hitler to Argentina at the end of WWII. That a good number of Nazis made the journey to countries like Brazil and Argentina is not in doubt. The father of a friend of mine, an Argentinian, was one of them, though I've never actually plucked up the cojones to ask him any detailed questions about a subject that has long fascinated me.

Paul Schaefer's story doesn't fit in well with that of the commonly perceived German post-war fugitive figure, one who sets up home in South America having brought with him the ill-gotten wealth from the spoils of war. Schaefer's Nazi past stayed with him, along with the arrogance and belief in his own invincibility, despite the depravity of his new lifestyle.

You can read about him here:

"The self-proclaimed holy man — a one-eyed ex-Nazi serial child abuser who once reportedly faked the shooting of a cult member in a Santa Claus costume to scare the settlement’s children into obedience — acted with impunity for decades thanks to his close relationship with the government of Gen. Augusto Pinochet, the military ruler of Chile from 1973 through 1990."

Schaefer's protector was a figure greatly admired by Margaret Thatcher and the red carpet was once rolled out in London for one of latin America's most notorious murderers and torturers, Chile's General Pinochet. Nothing new there as minor details such as mass graves for political opponents can often be glossed over in favour of economic considerations or the illusion that communism is being thwarted by butchering university students and troublesome priests.

Serial child rape is quite a different matter though (please don't bother listing the crimes of the various Churches as it gets enough coverage elsewhere).

Schaefer's commune in Chile was home to serial sex abuse of children, torture and murder, the latter at the hands of Chile's security services, and only came to light courtesy of Amnesty International and the perseverance of reporters following up on rumours. He was eventually captured in Buenos Aires and stood trial in Chile but died just five years into his sentence in 2010.

Bizarrely, Schaefer's home, Villa Baviera, a sprawling spread in the Chilean countryside, is now a tourism business with hotel, restaurant and nature walks. You can check it out here:

They even have a section dealing with the place's dark history.

I'm not in favour of Nazi children, but still don't think they should be raped.

Any evidence for that - or just a smear?

Thatcher was undoubtedly grateful as Chile was the only country in South America
to support the UK during the Falkland's War.

Any links to 'economic considerations' or 'communism being thwarted'??
