Nazi Hunter Eyes German Presidency

Veteran Nazi hunter Beate Klarsfeld has jumped into the German political fray as an alternative candidate for president.

Her decision to run comes amid growing criticism of the sole nominee — Joachim Gauck, a former East German anti-communist activist who later was the first to head the post-unification commission investigating the archives of the East German secret police. Gauck is coming under increasing criticism over his views on Holocaust remembrance.
