Simon Wiesenthal spent four and a half years in Mauthausen concentration camp during World War II. With the exception of his wife, all his immediate family were exterminated, and he himself ended the war a living skeleton.

Since then, he has achieved international reknown for his tireless and successful tracking down of Nazi war criminals, including notorious figures such as Eichmann, the 'desk murderer' who masterminded Hitler's Final Solution; Stangl the overlord of Treblinka; and the Mengele of Auschwitz, the dreaded 'Angel of Death'.

To this day his work continues, his motivation simply expressed in the words: 'Justice, not vengeance'. This work provides an account of Wiesenthal's inspired detective work.

Review quote

Wiesenthal is a unique survivor... his one purpose is that justice for the dead of Europe, those wilfully killed by his fellow Austrian, Hitler's decree, be not forgotten. To understand him read Levy's book. * Sunday Telegraph * It is greatly to the credit of Alan Levy that he has dared to give us an objective account of Wiesethal's career. * Sunday Times * [Wiesenthal] can have no finer interpreter and sympathiser than Alan Levy, who has dealt justly with him. * Financial Times * Wiesenthal has played his part in a disturbing episode of post-war history. He deserves this readable and intelligent book. * The Times * Levy is ruthless in his determination to make every act of barbarity clear. It is impossible to turn the pages without feeling not just despair but revulsion. * New Statesman & Society *
