Overview

In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials -- one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination.

THE NAZI HUNTERS is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Survivor Simon Wiesenthal opened Eichmann's case; a blind Argentinean and his teenage daughter provided crucial information. Finally, the Israeli spies -- many of whom lost family in the Holocaust -- embarked on their daring mission, recounted here in full. Based on the adult bestseller HUNTING EICHMANN, which is now in development as a major film, and illustrated with powerful photos throughout, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

Read an Excerpt

From THE NAZI HUNTERS:
His hands numb from the cold and rain, Malkin held the binoculars up to his face. He saw a bus approach down Route 202. It stopped at the kiosk, and a man in a trench coat and hat got off.
“That's him,” Shalom whispered.
The sight of the lone figure walking through the driving rain burned in Malkin's mind: This was the man he had come to Argentina to capture.
