A Nazi hunter with the Simon Wiesenthal Center says age and time's passage are no barriers to investigating alleged Nazi activity during World War II.

If a person is charged with war crimes, you don't just ignore the crime because a suspect has reached old age, says Efraim Zuroff, who calls the German-led investigation of now 87-year-old Johann "Hans" Breyer of Philadelphia a powerful message that such efforts will continue.

Germany has launched a war crimes investigation against Breyer on allegations he served as an SS guard at the Auschwitz death camp complex after years of failed attempts by the U.S. to revoke his citizenship.

Breyer has denied the allegations, saying he was never at the camp but at a training camp nearby.
