“For every German soldier ten Italians had to die…”

Remarkable footage of the moment SS war criminal Erich Priebke was confronted by a television journalist in 1994.

Priebke died at the age of 100 earlier this month. He was under house arrest in Rome.

He had found himself back in Italy after this confrontation in which Sam Donaldson of ABC doorsteps him in Argentina.

As a result of the interview Priebke was extradited to Italy and sentenced to prison for his part in the 1944 Ardeatine Caves massacre in Rome.
