But the brewing cold war caused the U.S. and Soviet Union to quickly lose interest in the prosecution of Nazis. Wiesenthal closed the Linz centre in 1954 but gained new hope with the capture of Adolf Eichmann (w:Adolf Eichmann), whom he helped to track down. Possibly his biggest success was the capture and trial of Franz Stangl (w:Franz Stangl), commandant at the Treblinka (w:Treblinka) extermination camp.

Cheo Feliciano admits being Efraín's roadie once around this time. ''"Se Chavó"'' became a seminal work in the history of Puerto Rican plena, essentially revived Efraín's career and made him famous in a few Latin American countries, particularly in Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. The album had three smash hits, a semi-autobiographical plena named ''"Ya Llegó"'' (written for him by fellow Puerto Rican composer and singer Felito Felix) and another called ''"Julia Lee"'', the story of a bully who terrorized San Juan's Barrio Obrero neighborhood. A third hit was a medley of "Qué Será" and "Askarakatiskis". In Puerto Rico, two additional plenas written by Tite Curet Alonso, one called ''"La Humanidad"'' ("The Humanity"), in which Tite criticizes people's pettiness that have ruined the friendship between two buddies, and ''"Tinguilikitín"'', which describes Mayagüez's old horse-pulled tram and its bell, were minor hits. Soon after his mid-1960s albums were re-released. In 1976, while Efraín was alive, a tribute song to him, ''"Cuchú Cuchá"'' became a sleeper hit in the Dominican Republic. The same song was later versioned by Jossie Esteban and his former group, Patrulla 15, and became a huge merengue (merengue (music)) hit in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and New York City. Just after Efraín's death, the Puerto Rican plena collective Los Pleneros del Quinto Olivo recorded a tribute song, ''¿Dónde estará Mon?'' (''"Where would Mon be?"'') that spoke fondly of Efraín (although the song did have some inaccuracies concerning him). Aged twelve, he embarked as ship's boy on a boat from Lorient heading for the island of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic). From there, he embarked for Pondichéry, French trading post in India. Madec lived there for about twenty five years, sometimes French corsair, sometimes British corsair. He became soldier under Joseph François Dupleix and sergeant under Lally-Tollendal. Being taken prisoner by the British (Kingdom of Great Britain), he enlisted in the Bengal army.
