A fascinating account of hunting down Nazis.

Apr 20, 2014

I wasn't able to put the book down, especially since this was the first one I read about Nazi hunting. It's a kaleidoscope of the search for the worst of the WWII criminals, with a focus on Aribert Heim, his family, and his hidden life in Cairo. As Germany didn't have death sentence, the war crimes weren't punished nearly enough, and the majority of the war criminals weren't even prosecuted. It was interesting to realize that had Heim not escaped into hiding, he could have likely received a relatively short sentence like most other Nazis did, and might have lived the rest of his life as a wealthy man. With his years of fear and of exile from everything he cared for Heim unwittingly ended up with more appropriate sentence for his crimes.
