Beginning in , the Office of Special Investigations OSI opened hundreds of investigations and initiated proceedings of Nazi war criminals. Despite initial predictions that its work would soon be finished, OSI has been active for over 25 years. Most proceedings initiated by OSI were against either auxiliary police forces serving in German-occupied territories, or guards at concentration camps and forced-labor camps. The documents described proceedings against US citizens or residents who allegedly participated in persecution on behalf of the Nazis or their allies. OSI established a record as the most active and successful such law enforcement unit in the world.
Its purpose is to detect and investigate individuals who took part in state sponsored acts committed in violation of public international law , such as crimes against humanity. The case caused quite a stir and, in consequence, a special working group was set up at the immigration authority, which should identify other war criminals from the Nazi-era, who lived in the United States. This working group was under great public pressure, and was not sufficiently prepared for the task of handling a large number of complex investigations. During —, the department initiated five cases, all except one were lost. In the one case won it turned out later that an alleged Gestapo officer was in fact a former forced laborer. As a consequence, the New York Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman called for the creation of a special unit to prosecute war criminals residing in the United States. Its task consisted of processing the accumulated cases and the resumption of the search for war criminals in the United States. The OSI was equipped with greater powers than any other department. Its employees were able to do all necessary steps themselves, from a first investigation to litigation, negotiating with foreign governments and calling for support of other U. OSI's work is primarily focused on acts by Nazis abroad before and during World War II , and who subsequently entered, or sought to enter, the United States illegally or fraudulently.
