#Wikidata - You are infamous when you are on the Simon #Wiesenthal list

There are many Nazis who are included in #Wikipedia. Consequently they are in Wikidata. When you compare the attention given to them, it is obvious a case of positive bias. More attention is given to their awards, their stations, ranks and other paraphernalia than for many similar groups.

For this reason it is great to offset such bias by listing those who were convicted for their crimes. It is important to list the people who are or were wanted by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, There is no category for these people. The list is very much incomplete but at least there are now at least 22 of them listed.

It would be good when attention is given to the people who were on the list and what came of them. The glorification of these people needs a counterweight. This list is at best a start.
